St Andrews Botanic Gardens

The first Botanic Gardens in St Andrews dates from 1889 south of St Mary's College in South Street, now relocated at Bassaguard. The gardens were once leased from the St Andrews University to North East Fife District Council who now, under Fife Council, continues to maintain them.

Picture of FlowersThere is almost 18 acres of gardens, which has been impressively landscaped with trees, shrubs, ponds, herbaceous borders and so many others to mention. The greenhouses are used for growing plants, which would not with-stand the weather climate in St Andrews. These plants range from hot regions such as South East Asia to the cold mountains of the alpines. Regardless of when you visit there is always a large display of colour from flowers and foliage.
