In the 20th century the garden acquired three regional gardens; The mountainous Benmore in Argyll, Dawyck in the Scottish borders and Logan on the southern peninsula of Dumfries & Galloway. Today it runs over four gardens; together they boast one of the world’s largest and richest living collections of plants. The royal Botanic Garden is also a world-renowned centre for plant science and education.
