Today the Botanical Garden of Lund University have over 7 000 species on 8 hectares (20 acres) in the middle of Lund. The collections include plants from tropical rainforests, deserts and mountains. There is also a range of fruits, vegetables and medicinal plants.
The "Old Botanical Garden” was founded 1690 and was situated at the current University square in Lundagård. At that time, the garden sorted under the Faculty of Medicine. The garden at Östra Vallgatan was established in the 1860s and in the 1970s it was detached from the Botanical Institute of Lund University.
The botanical garden is still supporting research and education, but the main focus today is on communicating knowledge about botany, horticulture and environmental issues.
