Dahlias growing in Outdoor Gardens at Eden Project

Outdoor Gardens

In a beautiful and symbolic transformation, we've turned what was once a barren landscape into our striking contemporary Outdoor Gardens. Across the vast slopes of the former clay mine, we present cultivated and wild landscapes and explore our dependence on both.

The Gardens are home to over 20 plant-based exhibits, colourful seasonal borders, art installations and play areas. The Wild Edge area displays the world’s temperate lands while the Crops area introduces plants for food, fuels, medicines and materials. There are gardens for play, creativity, fruit, veg, flowers, health and wellbeing. Our growing Climate Garden takes you through 400 million years and explores possible positive futures.
