Garden Planting Days, Castle Park

Free

Meet volunteers from Arnolfini and Bristol Botanic Garden at Castle Park for a bird’s eye view of planting on the Floating Ballast Seed Garden.

Watch from Castle Park as volunteers from the University Botanic Garden plant the beds of the Ballast Seed Garden for another year.

Talk to our friendly, knowledgeable volunteers about our amazing garden, and hear about the ideas behind the Floating Ballast Seed Garden project. 

Learn more about the garden and planting scheme, including newly introduced plants for 2016.

Located on Bristol’s historic harbour, just below Castle Park, the The Ballast Seed Garden was created by Maria Thereza Alves in June 2012. Constructed from a disused grain barge, the garden is populated with a variety of non-native plants, creating a living history of the city’s trade and maritime past.
