History

In the XVII-XVIII centuries, in different parts of the territory of today's botanical garden, three small sized gardens were cultivated, which belonged to the Royal Court of Georgia. From the records of the French traveler Jean-Baptiste Chardin it is known, that the royal garden was especially looked after by the Queen Mariam, wife of the last king of Kartli-Kakheti, Giorgi XII. After accession of Georgia by Russia, the garden became a state property. In 1845, it was named a Botanical Garden by order of count Mikhail Vorontsov. In 1896-1904, the garden was expanded to the west. In 1932-58 the territory of the former Muslim cemetery was added, on the right bank of Tsavkisistskali and on the north-eastern slope of Tabori mountain. Currently the garden area is 97 acres. There are rich collections of flora of Georgia and various regions of the world. The garden collection includes about 3500 species, varieties and cultivars. In the National Botanical Garden of Georgia there is an orangey of tropical plant, a nursery thrift and operating 6 scientific-research departments.
