Why We Can't Identify Gardens
Botanic gardens choose to share their lists of plant data with us so that we can provide the public with access to a database of plants in cultivation. We use this data to analyse the current state of threatened plants and measure how close the world is to protecting plant diversity for the long term.
We cannot share the garden identity because in some cases, gardens are growing rare or valuable specimens and there is concern that it is not always desirable for this information to be made available indiscrimiately to the public.
If you wish to find out the location of certain plants please contact BGCI to place a request for the garden to contact you.
