The Plant Collection contains over 7000 plants from all over the world. These have different forms: woody, herbaceous and bulbs. They have different life-cycles: perennial, biennial and annual. Many are here because the flowers, foliage, fruit, bark or form give pleasure. Others are chosen for practical purposes to give screening, shelter or food. Some are of botanical interest, are a rarity, or are under threat so needing conservation nationally or globally. Many play an important role in our lives. All have stories to tell.
