Research Collections

The plants distributed and cultivated across the Garden's 40 acre site number over 8000 different species, and are the living research and teaching collections of the University of Cambridge.

Within this diverse collection, ranging from aquatic carnivorous plants to huge conifers, some collections are of particular depth and importance, and have often developed as a result of a particular research interest.
