  • Since 2002 the University of Bristol Botanic Garden has been open to visitors at The Holmes in Stoke Bishop. Built in 1879 in the ‘Arts and Crafts’ style as a large residential house sitting within 1.77 hectares of gardens. The design of the Botanic Garden features a meandering ‘organic’ trail through a blend of informal and formal plantings both educational and aesthetically pleasing. Plant Evolution, Mediterranean climate section, useful plants, herbaceous borders, pollinator displays and local flora and rare natives. The glasshouses contain tender species from the four core collections displayed in four distinct climate zones: Tropical, sub-Tropical, Warm Temperate and Cool Temperate. These collections are planted in educational displays that convey the drama of plants in the wild, aspects of their evolutionary biology and immerse the visitor in the display, transporting them to many different habitats. The large glasshouses provide the right climatic conditions for many exotic plants including cacti, orchids, carnivorous plants and unique within Bristol the giant Amazon water lily and sacred lotus collection.
