Cacti & Succulents
Much of the planting is experimental, on the cusp of the limit to what even the Ventnor microclimate will allow.
A warm welcome..
"Nestling in the microclimate of The Undercliff, Ventnor Botanic Garden on the Isle of Wight has a subtropical and exotic plant collection unrivalled elsewhere in the UK. Plants which would normally be found in protected glasshouses thrive and naturalise in geographical plantings based on the Mediterannean zones of the world. As you will see from these pages there is much to see at Ventnor, and we hope you enjoy this unique and wonderful garden."
Chris Kidd, Curator
