The Botanical Garden behind the main campus building of the University of Debrecen was established in 1928 when the original garden that had belonged to the Reformed College was demolished. It began with a donation of land from the University of Debrecen, 13.7 hectares located behind the university. The first part of the garden to be established was the Herb Garden. Its purpose was both aesthetic and scientific, and for teaching purposes. In 1935 the rock garden was established and between 1935 and 1940 the rock bottom of the lake was prepared and completed. Post-1940, plant species of Hungarian origin were the priority. The largest greenhouse complex is the palm house, containing tropical plants from sub-tropical areas, tropical spice and fruit including vanilla, pepper, avocado, and banana, not forgetting the Pineapple. Today it keeps nearly 8,000 plant species specimens, although around 6000 are on display.
