Botanist's Lens: Biodiversity of Plants

Biodiversity refers to the variety of plant and animal species living on Earth. According to The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List, over 38,000 species are facing extinction. Sadly, extinction of species is now happening 500 times faster.

Now is the time for one and all to understand habitat loss, fragile ecosystems, diversity of plants for both exotic and native and, the impacts of extinction.

London Town's gardens originally started with the vision of plant trials and highlighting the biodiversity of plants. It has evolved into one of a kind gardens offering plant collections diversity in a woodland garden that is also filled with beautiful vistas. Most of all, each year we're increasing the access to its stunning living collections via mediums like plant sales, like the one happening next weekend on Saturday, September 25 from 9am - 2pm.
