Borrow, Grow, and Return!
Our seed library is one way we nurture that connection. We provide seeds that you borrow, grow, and then return. If you are new to gardening, interested in growing a greater diversity of plants, or invested in supporting a community of growers, our seed library will help you meet those goals.
Horticulture & Collections
With tens of thousands of plants in our five cultivated garden areas, there is always something interesting growing at RBG. Here are some of the key collections curated by the Royal Botanical Gardens’ horticulture department.
