St Andrews Botanic Garden holds a globally important botanic collection and is a centre for botanical knowledge. We use our diverse plant collections and expertise to promote and advance the education of diverse communities in the knowledge of botany, horticulture, the environment and other subjects related to the work carried out at the garden. We seek to help people live better and healthier lives through the use of our garden and natural environments and believe that we have a responsibility to understand, value and protect the plants that sustain our world. About 8000 species of ferns, herbaceous plants, shrubs and trees are grown here. Some are native to Scotland but most grow wild in other regions of the world. All those outdoors are hardy and can be cultivated successfully in the climate around St Andrews.
