The University Gardens
The gardens through the year


Even in early spring there are bursts of colour in the gardens - if you know where to look.

Main content

In February, the winter flowering heath is a mass of pink and white in the heather garden. In March, spring is underway. You can listen to our botanist Heidi Lie Andersen and gardener in charge of the botanical garden Bodil Oma on spring flowering back in 2015, on Naturens Verden. In April, the Narcissus collections come into their own and anticipation mounts for the flowering of the Rhododendrons in the Arboretum (the timing of which depends on the weather).
