Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, our collections will be closed to visitors until 1 June 2021 to ensure safe working conditions for staff and visitors.

For the Herbarium, Fungarium, and Economic Botany collections, loans, samples and image requests, we are gradually working through requests which have accumulated. Requests for seed from the Millennium Seed Bank are being processed, although despatch may take longer than usual.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
