The Bristol Botanical Garden is the first in this country to be built for thirty years. The original garden was set up in 1882 and its most recent move was in 2005 to Stoke Bishop. Over 12,000 plants were propagated and transplanted to create a garden with some 4,500 species which are displayed in collections including the evolution of land plants, Mediterranean climatic regions, local flora and rare natives and useful plants. Nick will also speak in more detail about the garden’s medicinal plants.
In conjunction with the talk the society have arranged a visit for their members to the Botanical Garden on Saturday 6th June. The talk will be a night of guaranteed interest. Doors open at 7pm and refreshments will be available.
