Logan Botanic Garden

Gardens and Nurseries
Port Logan

The Garden’s avenues and borders feature a spectacular and colourful array of half-hardy perennials. Logan Botanic Garden  is warmed by the Gulf Stream which enables plants from Australia, New Zealand, South and Central America and Southern Africa to thrive.

Situated on the South Western tip of Scotland, the 5*Logan Botanic Garden enjoys an almost sub tropical climate

Palm Trees and Tree Ferns – 

These striking plants form an antipodean forest and create an exotic spectacle for visitors to enjoy.

Eucalyptus and Giant Gunnera –

Visitors can walk through groves of eucalyptus or stand in the shade of awesome giant rhubarb-like gunnera.

The Walled Garden –

A showcase for exotic plants and the fish pond, adorned with water lilies, adds to the air of tranquility.

Logan Conservatory –

The elegant Victorian-style Logan Conservatory houses a range of particularly tender exotic plants from South Africa.  It is the first all-green Glasshouse in the UK.

Situated near to the main entrance, The Discovery Centre gives visitors the chance to learn more about the Garden and its history.
