The botanical garden is located on a farm which in 1863 bought Patrick Piers and just a year later began planting the Sequoias that form the avenue of entry of the current botanical garden. This process of plantations was continued by his successors.
A time later, collector George Forrest, between 1904 and 1932, made seven large specimen collection expeditions to western China, constituting a herbarium more than 30 000 specimens and collecting seeds of more than 10 000 species.
