There is no direct bus link. To get there you'll need to take the train to Brussels-North and switch to bus 251 at the station.

No, there are no buses that do that sort of distance within Belgium. You can take a train to Brussels (Bruxelles-Nord/Brussel-Noord, 40 mins) and then, from stand 9 (bus station map http://www.delijn.be/images/CCN_perron_tcm7-13890.pdf) below the railway station, De Lijn bus 250, direction Puurs, to Meise (+/- 30 mins) as recommended on the garden's own website: br.fgov.be/PUBLIC/GENERAL/howtoreach_bus.php - for timetable see …delijn.be/dienstregelingen/Kalender2011/Bra… (downloaded from http://reisinfo.delijn.be/dienstregelingen/DienstregelingenHome.faces).

You can also take a train from Antwerp to Puurs (38 mins) and then the same bus, in the opposite direction, i.e. headed for Brussels (40 mins) but there aren't as many buses starting from there and overall the journey is longer.

For train timetable see http://www.railtime.be/website/train-schedule - cost Antwerp-Brussels is €7.10 single, €14.20 return for travel on Sat/Sun; or €8 weekend return; Antwerp-Puurs is €4.60 single, €9.20 return, or €5.60 weekend return.
