National Garden Scheme open day

20 May 2018, 10.00 AM - 20 May 2018, 5.00 PM

The Botanic Garden is delighted to be opening again for the NGS Scheme this year.  Last year the NGS donated £3.1 million to a variety of charities including Macmillan Cancer Support and Marie Curie.

Visitors will be able to enjoy a science exhibit hosted by PhD students from the School of Biological Sciences which explains some of the pioneering work being undertaken into how insect pollinators select flowers and how flowers use a variety of features to attract pollinators.

An additional delight will be a free tour at 2pm of the new peony garden which will be unique in southwest Britain showing the Gangsu and Mudan Chinese peonies. The peony garden forms the first phase of the Chinese Culture Garden.

Admission: £6.00 (including Friends of the Garden). Ticket includes tours. Children free.  Refreshments.

Proceeds to the NGS and University of Bristol Botanic Garden.
