By Nick Wilkins Brighton Gardens is the only botanic conservancy in the UK to be awarded the Brighton Garden Biodiversity Award.
The award was named after the area’s pioneering botanic gardener, Sir James Brighton.
Brighton Gardens has been awarded three times this year for its work on improving the biodiversity of the surrounding areas, which is home to some of the most endangered plants and animals in the world.
These include the rare species of treefrog, treefrogs, red-backed frog, tree frogs and other species.
In total, Brighton Gardens, with over 1,300 acres, manages over 400 species of plants and has a wide range of plants, including rare species.
To date, the award has been won by five botanic institutions across the UK: the Royal Botanic Gardens, the Botanic Garden of Scotland, the Royal Horticultural Society, the Biodome Conservancy, and the Natural History Museum of Liverpool.
Here are five of the best botanic parks in the country.
