The University of Bristol's Botanical Garden sits on five acres of prime development land in Leigh Woods which is why the university has decided to move the garden and sell the land for a price estimated in the millions.
The garden has one of the most comprehensive ranges of plants growing within the Bristol area including many species, such as the Bristol Onion and Bristol Whitebeam, which are unique to the landscape of Leigh Woods and the Avon Gorge.
