Outdoor Garden at the Eden Project

Our vibrant global garden tells the fascinating story of plants, and how we use them for things like medicine, fuels, materials and food the world over.

In our beautifully transformed clay pit in Cornwall, you'll find over 80 exhibits, including unusual plant combinations, unique sculpture and quirky information displays.
