Singapore Botanic Gardens

Indulge in a colorful midwinter escape as horticultural experts lead a series of virtual visits that highlight the beauty of notable botanical gardens in settings as far-flung as Singapore, the United Kingdom, the eastern United States, and Japan. In vibrant visuals they explore how each garden has taken a unique approach to design and interpretation as they celebrate plant collections, conservation, education, and the distinctive environments and landscapes in which they bloom.

Session Information

Singapore Botanic Garden and Norfolk Botanical Gardens

Singapore’s vision of a city in a garden has been realized over the past few decades. Explore one of the gems of a city now brimming with some of the most spectacular gardens in the world, Singapore Botanic Gardens. As an important botanical institute and the first and only tropical botanic garden on the UNESCO’s World Heritage site, the Gardens play a key role in Singapore’s Garden City program through continual introduction of plants of horticultural and botanical interest. The virtual visit explores a variety of tropical landscapes and native plants of the region.

Off the coast of Chesapeake Bay, Norfolk Botanical Garden reflects the diversity of landscape of Virginia. This coastal hub is continuously growing and expanding to support the needs of the community. Take an online tour of 60 themed gardens that overlook the bay, discover the many kinds of transportation that weave through this large site, and find some inspiration in the curious Children’s Garden. The Norfolk Botanical Garden immerses visitors in a world of beauty where surprising garden pockets wait around every turn.

Presenter Chelsea Mahaffey is manager of the Kemper Center at Missouri Botanical Gardens in St Louis. She is an advocate for horticulture as a career and passionate about the importance of plants in our lives.
