Save the PALM HOUSES at Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

Donate Today

Donations from the public have now hit £50,000. With matched funding this means we are at £100,000. The race is now on to meet our £250,000 target before 2025. We have secured further matched funding, so even more of your donations will be doubled.
A £50 donation becomes £100!

Working in the glasshouses

You can make a difference today

Over 200 years, the stonework has crumbled, the ironwork rusted, the glasswork broken and ineffective.

But you can help to change this.

Your contribution means a resilient future for the Palm Houses, where they can open their doors to you once more.

Your gift will mean the Palm Houses can provide a haven for incredible plants, some under threat in their native habitats.

Donate today, and your gift will be put to work immediately - we are working towards the first of the arched windows returning to the Palm Houses soon - you can help make it happen.

Save The Palm Houses

Our revitalised Palm Houses will be a living classroom, showcasing the beauty and importance of these exquisite plants

Your Impact

Your support is an investment in a greener, more resilient future.

Species like the majestic Black Tree Fern, with its 5-meter fronds, will flourish, turning the Palm Houses into a living classroom.

Each new pane of glass is a testament to sustainability, using reinforced glass to keep the plants protected and energy usage down.

Your support is not just a donation; it is a pledge to uphold the beauty, biodiversity, and historical legacy of our garden.

Whether you give £10 or £100, with matched funding your gift will make an impact. Please donate today.
