Plants that Changed the World & The Gin Border

Since 2015, this area – which was previously used to cultivate vegetables on the scale of an allotment – has been transformed into a showpiece collection highlighting plants that have changed the course of human civilisations across the globe. The plantings are a mixture of plants useful for food, medicines, fibres, dyes and much more, all illustrating how important plants are to our existence.

Botanicals used to flavour alcohol are grown in the adjoining Gin Border.
