The magnificent legacy of Reginald Cory, who left the residue of his estate to the Botanic Garden upon his death in 1934, has influenced all spheres of Garden activity. His generosity and foresight enabled the Botanic Garden finally to develop the eastern 18 acres of the site, purchased by the University a century earlier, into the publicly-accessible gardens enjoyed today. This area includes such gems as the Winter Garden, Scented Garden, local landscapes and several National Collections.
To share your passion for plants with future generations and to help us ensure that the Garden remains a world-class advocate of excellence in horticulture, education and outreach, please consider leaving a legacy to the Botanic Garden. If you have any questions, please use the Contact Form
