Looking for Cowslips
Spring weather makes you go out into nature. By the way, you can contribute to the development of science. We encourage everyone to take part in the citizen science project concerning cowslip (Primula veris L.), carried out by the University of Tartu in cooperation with numerous partners from all over Europe.
The first geophytes
A few warm, sunny days after the frost has passed, and we can already enjoy the sight of the emerging geophytes. The first snowdrops are already blooming in the Garden. The winter aconites and the first few crocuses have also bloomed :) Any day we expect mezereums to develop flowers. The aura encourages walks. The sounds of birds made them even more pleasant :) Goose keys and cranes fly overhead. The joyful chuckle of the green woodpecker reverberate in the Garden. We have extended the opening hours of the Garden! Currently, you can visit us at 9:00 a.m., and we do not close the gates until 5:00 p.m. See you on the garden paths!
Congress of Historic Botanical Gardens
Over recent years, there has been a renewed interest in the care and value of historic botanical gardens – those with built heritage, historical collections, or historical connections. Such gardens have made a major contribution to our understanding of the origin and development of botanical science, and to related disciplines such as herbal medicine, ethnobotany and ethnopharmacology. They have also influenced many of the crops we grow, the food we eat and the trees, shrubs and herbs that adorn our streets, parks, and gardens.
However, unless prompt action is taken, many of these unique resources risk falling into neglect, decay or in some cases total loss. This is already happening in many places and it is timely to celebrate and protect the treasures held in these historic botanic gardens. The 1st International Congress of Historic Botanical Gardens will be held in Lisbon, 11-12 October 2021.
