Guided tours of the collection garden

Guided tours of the collection garden are subject to a fee. A garden ticket can be purchased at the customer service desk during open hours. A garden ticket costs € 5 per person, including children from the age of 15. It is not desirable to bring pets into the collection garden and garden. In addition, it is possible to order a tutor who talks about plant growth requirements, care, different varieties, etc. and answers questions about a particular garden and plants growing in it. The instructor fee is 15 euros per tour.

NB! Collecting garden tours are free of charge for groups of horticultural students. The course tutor can arrange a tour by phone +372 55 101 31.

Plant variety characteristics

The variety-specific characteristics of the plants are manifested at their maximum when the growing conditions of the plants are at their maximum. The plants grow in the soil under the conditions of light, humidity and other conditions suitable for them, and the soil has the appropriate pH and nutritional properties. It is important that the plants are well rooted and the plants are well cared for. In garden potted plants in nursery space for growth is limited, moisture and root temperature regimes are inevitably leaky, which may result in poor or no varietal characteristics. For example, some hosts may not have a leaf pattern until the 2nd or 3rd year of growth (‘Gold Edger’, ‘Wide Brim’, ‘Climax’, etc.). The red and beige leaf varieties of pearl whorls, tiaras and small whorls respond to changes in light conditions, even when moving from spring to autumn. The flowering of the peonies may not arrive until the third year of growth. The coloring of colored rains is directly influenced by the pH of the soil and the availability of direct sunlight (UV radiation). The specific flowering of tulips, hyacinths, gladioli, lilies and many other bulb flowers depends directly on the size of the bulb. The cheapest and / or the smallest bulbs do not guarantee a high-quality flowering of the variety. Spotted trees, including conifers with yellow and blue canopy, can only be colored as a variety after proper rooting at their site, which may take a year or more depending on the size of the plant. In addition to good rooting, staining is directly dependent on the light conditions of the site. It should be borne in mind that fertilization with special conifers has a direct effect on the expression of the varietal characteristics. Fertilized plants may be fertilized, ie one year after planting. Immediate fertilization upon planting significantly impairs the rooting of woody plants and thus their winter hardiness, which in turn affects the appearance of varietal characteristics during subsequent vegetation periods.

In the case of rooted perennials, if there is no certainty of the crop’s fertilizer use, less fertilization is advisable, for example at half the recommended rate, as fertilized plants may also not convey their variety characteristics in the best way.
