The glasshouses at Cambridge University Botanic Garden have reopened for the first time since lockdown.

There are seven glasshouses which would normally be open year-round, with each themed to highlight plant adaptations, habitats and associations in a diversity of environments.

They have been shut to visitors since March, but have reopened at the same time the botanic garden has its whole team back.

Another cause to celebrate is the launch of a new guidebook – Director’s Choice: Cambridge University Botanic Garden Guidebook.

It costs £10, and has colour photographs of the plants, trees and wildlife in the garden.

Professor Beverley Glover introduces some of the highlights in the botanic garden’s collection, sets the scene for its foundation and history, and showcases some of its modern landscapes and horticultural set pieces.

Purchases made online will need to be collected in person from the ticket office, with proof of purchase email.
