Ness Botanic Gardens
Originally created by Arthur Kilpin Bulley in 1898 and bequeathed to the University of Liverpool by his daughter Lois Agnes after his death in 1942, the garden showcases Bulley’s passion for new plants, many of which were early introductions from China, the Himalayas, Tibet and Burma.
Ness is home to more than 15,000 types of plants from all over the world, and more than 600 species of birds, mammals, bees, butterflies and other insects.
Their garden calendar begins with snowdrop displays in February and continues into Spring with Camellias, Rhododendrons and Magnolias.
From early Summer, the Victorian style vegetable garden and 100 metres of herbaceous borders burst in to life, while Autumn brings fabulous shows of berries and colour from the garden’s varied collections of trees, as well as the beautiful bark and foliage of Birches and Maples.
