Edinburgh Biomes is the most exciting and visionary project being undertaken by the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE) since its relocation to its fourth site at Inverleith in 1820. The project aims to conserve plant life for generations to come. 

Edinburgh Biomes is central to RBGE’s response to the twin challenges of the biodiversity crisis and climate emergency.  In a world where 40% of plant species are estimated to be under threat, our mission has never been more urgent.

The project will protect global plant science and conservation through the restoration of the Garden’s A-listed historic Palm Houses, modernist Front Range and research houses. It will also provide new facilities for cutting edge plant science, accelerating RBGE’s research into plant pests and pathogens.

Edinburgh Biomes will create a new destination within the Garden for visitors, staff and academics from around the world - the creation of a new Glasshouse that will enrich our National Botanic Collection, provide a spectacular visitor experience and inspire the scientists, horticulturists and conservationists of the future.
