The roots of the Botanic Garden go back to 6 October 1920, when the officers of the Botanical Section of the Leicester Literary and Philosophical Society were invited to undertake the work of establishing such a garden… and as Leicester University celebrates its 100th birthday in 2022 I hope this linocut does it justice!

Its present site was acquired in the 1940s and incorporated 4 grand Arts and Crafts Houses – Hastings House, Southmeade House, The Knole and Beaumont House which in its time was reputed to have one of the finest gardens in the county!

Oh yes .... and there's also a tea towel available ... page 2 of shop !
