Scotland’s most exotic garden is famous for its botanical treasures from South and Central America, Southern Africa and Australasia, all rarely seen in the United Kingdom. One of 3 Regional Gardens of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, Logan Botanic Garden is a breathtaking celebration of the world of plants.
Logan’s Walled Garden is a showcase for brilliant blooms and it’s ablaze with colour throughout the year. The garden’s sub tropical character is at its most obvious from June to September when shrubberies of fuchsias, hebes, hydrangeas and colourful borders filled with mostly wild species break out in bloom. With its backdrop of cabbage palms, Chusan palms and tree ferns the atmosphere on a sunny day is truly tropical.
Logan Botanic Garden is a plantsman’s paradise throughout the year and even in autumn and winter the visitor gets a chance to encounter exotic species which are unique in Scotland. Areas such as the Woodland Garden surprise and delight visitors of all ages with its collection of weird and wonderful plants and trees such as the eucalypts groves and the gunnera bog.
You can learn more about the garden and its work with a tour in the company of new digital audio guides while the Discovery Centre, near the main entrance, gives visitors the chance to learn more about the garden and its history. Events and exhibitions are run for visitors of all ages throughout the season and visitors can enjoy a tasty lunch or light snack in the Potting Shed Bistro.Don't miss:
