Birmingham Botanical Gardens

Birmingham Botanical and Horticultural Society, which manages the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, was founded in 1829 with an initial subscription capital of £2,000. The site selected was ‘Holly Bank Farm’, farmed purely for recreation by a successful fire insurance broker on 18 acres of leased land on Lord Calthorpe¹s Estate. The Gardens were designed by J.C. Loudon, a Scotsman who was a leading garden planner, horticultural journalist and publisher.
