Botanic Garden Database Plant Collections Database The unique value of a Botanic Garden is that its plant collection is fully documented enabling its use for research, conservation and education. St Andrews Botanic Garden has maintained continuous plant records throughout its history. These have included card record systems and specialst collections databases, most recently BG Base. St Andrews Botanic Garden is currently transferring its plant records onto IrisBG. This modern database used by over 200 Botanic Gardens globally, will enable us to make all of our plant information available online for free global access. This process is ongoing and access will be available here as soon as possible. In addition to our collections database, we make every effort to ensure all plants on display in the garden are accurately labelled.
