    'The Evolution of Ness Garden'

    Ness Garden

    by Nick Lightfoot

    Nick Lightfoot is Garden & Collections Manager at Ness Botanic Gardens. He leads a team of 9 staff and about 100 volunteers and is responsible for garden master planning, plant collection policy, collection management and a new glasshouse project.
    Nick previously worked in a garden designed by Thomas Mawson and recently for the National Trust.
    His qualifications include the RHS Master of Horticulture and an MA in Garden History. He originally trained as an archaeologist and has a BSc in Ancient History & Archaeology.

    Ness Botanic Garden was born of one man's passionate interest in plants and his desire to share that interest with others. When the Liverpool cotton merchant Arthur Kilpin Bulley began to create a garden in 1898, he laid the foundations of one of the major botanic gardens in the United Kingdom.

    Ness Botanic Garden is spread across 64 acres with stunning views of the River Dee and North Wales.
    The Garden features a diverse variety of plants and planting areas. Constantly changing, there are always new things to see at Ness, including vibrant year-round colour and outstanding collections of Rhododendrons, Camellias, Snowdrops and Sorbus, amongst others.
