Looking good now
This beautiful American sweetgum is still aflutter with orange, butter yellow, coral, crimson and deep mulberry coloured leaves, each with five sharply-pointed lobes.

Experimental Glasshouses (private)

A key element of the Garden's remit is to provide dedicated growing facilities to support research projects from around the University and these glasshouses provide a variety of growing environments.
Recent experiments include growing collections for physiological research, tracking the forgaing behaviour of bees and, during the autumn, supporting undergraduate projects. The University's academic year begins in October, so this means some experiments have to be conducted during the autumn and winter, which requires the use of supplementary lights to keep the plants growing. These experimental glasshouses are not open to visitors.
