In 2017 a new greenhouse was constructed to support the development of the north east corner of the main garden. It will house collections while greenhouses are replaced and the historic Palm Houses and Front Range are renovated. Developments and planning are moving steadily forward to create exciting visitor experience, greenhouse environments and research glasshouses, that will support our science for many years.
Recently staff have been developing techniques to combat the spread of disease particularly Phytophthora sp., a type of Oomycetes (water moulds), collectively known as the plant destroyers (Sudden oak Death is perhaps the best known), to ensure the survival of the collection.
