The Meise Botanic Garden, until 2014 called the National Botanic Garden of Belgium, is a botanical garden located in the grounds of Bouchout Castle in Meise, Flemish Brabant, just north of Brussels. It is one of the world’s largest botanical gardens, with an extensive collection of living plants and a herbarium of about 4 million specimens.

The botanic garden’s mission statement specifies increasing and spreading “the knowledge of plants” and contributions to “the conservation of biodiversity”. Research at the garden is primarily conducted on Belgian and African plants.
