Fen Display

‘The Fen Display demonstrates the transition in the vegetation from deep open water with waterlilies through reedbed and wet margins to woodland (fen carr) consisting mainly of birches and willows. This range of habitats from deep-water to drier margins supports a rich and varied flora…The Fen Display was renovated in 2003 with major grants from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Waste Recycling Environmental and with support from Cambridgeshire County Council and Cambridge City Council’s Sustainable City programme.  The Fen Display is managed such that each quadrant of reedbed is cut once every four years. This mimics traditional management techniques.’  Cambridge University Botanic Garden web site
