Tuesday's are Garden improvement days
The Gardens will be open six days a week, closing on
Tuesdays, from 1 March 2014.
The Horsfall Rushby Visitor Centre incorporating The Garden
Kitchen, Gift Shop and Plant Centre will remain open seven days a
The Tuesday closure day will be used to carry out essential
garden maintenance work, staff training and project work. The
Gardens will remain open to the public, University staff and
students, and Friends of Ness Gardens from Wednesday to Monday
until 31st October.
Ness has placed a bid with the Heritage Lottery Fund to provide
new glasshouses and visitor facilities in the heart of the garden,
which will offer essential wet weather options. If
successful, it will provide more resources to attract visitors to
Ness during the winter season.
Ness aims to establish a new era in visitor enjoyment and member
support to ensure that the legacy of Arthur Bulley endures as a
horticultural and heritage asset.
