A few words from our curator…
“Basking in the microclimate of The Undercliff, Ventnor Botanic Garden on the Isle of Wight is one of the great gardens of Britain.
Our subtropical and exotic plant collection is unrivalled. Plants that should be found in protective glasshouses thrive and naturalise out of doors thanks to our mild climate and sheltered setting.
VBG presents landscapes or portraits of ecosystems, showing plants in association with each other as they would be seen in their native, wild environments. This is called landscape immersion. We hope you enjoy this unique and wonderful garden.”
Chris Kidd, Curator
