ULB - Jean Massart experimental Botanical Garden

Open air plant collection of 2,000 species.

Created by Jean Massart in 1922, this garden currently hosts several collections. Among the thematic gardens, a collection of over 300 species of medicinal plants classified according to their principal active ingredients, a collection of cultivated plants demonstrating the history of certain species using their wild ancestors, and an evolutionary garden displaying the evolution of flowering plants by its classification. There are also two collections illustrating the research conducted by the university’s laboratory of plant ecology and biogeochemistry, a wetland area, an arboretum, an orchard and a collection of gorgeous wild plants.
