Located in 9.5 hectares of south facing, gently sloping land near the banks of the River Tay, the Garden features many species of indigenous British plants as well as representative collections of important plants from all the continents of the world.

The Garden is committed to Education for people of all ages, with more than 80,000 visitors crossing its threshold every year.

The Garden has a popular café and gift shop with plant nursery, whilst regular art exhibitions are hosted in the Visitor Centre, and facilities exist for holding receptions and meetings.

It was purpose built to encourage the public to have a greater understanding of science.
