An international show garden has been created at Ness Botanic Gardens by garden designer and TV presenter Chris Beardshaw.
The RHS Gold Award-winning garden, entitled Ness Botanische, was inspired by decades of scientific and academic research by the University at Ness Botanic Gardens.
The design represents a slice through a plant stem and leads the viewer on a journey from traditional ornamental British woodland-style planting to a Germanic-inspired prairie-style garden. At its centre sits the Primula bulleyana, a plant that carries the name of Ness founder, Arthur Kilpin Bulley.
The garden is now open to the public. For details of admission prices and opening times visit: http://www.liv.ac.uk/nessgardens/index.htm
