Research glasshouses

Our 15 purpose-build glasshouse modules provide flexible growth facilities dedicated to our wide range of plant science and ecological research. 

The glasshouses provide control of temperature (all are heated and three are three fully air-conditioned), LED-lighting to supplement daylight and extend day length, defined irrigation, and a range of containment options.  

Our glasshouse facility is fully integrated with our plant science laboratories, and is used for everything from detailed studies of leaf and root physiology through to taking crops such as tomatoes and wheat to harvest.

They also support undergraduate and Masters projects, and student practical classes.
