Bganz Garden of the Week - The System Garden at Melbourne University, Parkville. The System Garden was first conceived in 1856 by the University’s first Professor of Natural sciences Frederick McCoy. It’s an unusual garden because unlike a botanical or ornamental garden, the plants were selected and planted according to an evolutionary system of classification – hence, System Garden, and was only for the students of the day studying plant sciences. Originally covering a quarter of the University’s grounds, the initial design of the garden had many large concentric circles with a potting shed tower at its center and now long gone a conservatory and moat surrounding that. Visitors could walk from the middle of the garden to the outer edges and trace the evolution of the plant kingdom. It was originally bounded by a spectacular acacia hedge, this was removed in the early 1900s to make way for the Botany and Zoology Buildings which now occupy parts of the original garden. Some of Professor McCoy’s original plantings are still flourishing, including trees on the National Trust Significant Tree Register & The City of Melbourne’s exceptional tree register, among them are three towering palm trees, Jubaea chillensis, Phoenix sylvestris, Phoenix canariensis, Maclura pomifera (Osage orange tree), and many large conifers. Twenty years ago the System Garden was updated to reflect a more current system of classification – the Cronquist classification system – with the beds laid out according to plant subclasses and is the oldest continually functioning systematic garden of its kind in Australia. The System Garden is still very much used as a teaching garden today and is seen as a botanic garden now more than ever before with an incredible collection of plant species to inspire the next generation of plants people. Although it’s designed to highlight the science of Botany and the evolution of plants, the garden is a beautiful public space often used by students and staff as a quiet place to think, read or eat lunch. The System Garden is open from 9am-5pm Monday-Friday. To see inspiring images of the System garden follow systemgarden1 on Instagram. 2015-05-29T04:16:52+0000
