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!
Renovation of the summer pavilion begins
On August 21, renovation of the summer pavilion in the oldest part of the AMU Botanical Garden in Poznań begins. Therefore, the pavilion and the adjacent area will be closed to the public until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience (click more to see the map).
Why the gate at Botaniczna street is closed? The statement
the reason for closing the gate at Botaniczna street is the care of the safety of our visitors. It is threatened by passing through the garden of cyclists and occurring acts of vandalism. In addition, to maintain the integrity of valuable and rich plant collections, it is also our responsibility to prevent dogs from entering the Garden and to prevent the theft of plants and elements of the infrastructure. The Adam Mickiewicz University does not have additional resources to employ people supervising the order in the park, therefore, opening the second gate even on weekends and holidays remains impossible. We also note that other institutions located in Poznań: zoological gardens, the Poznań Palm House and the Arboretum of the University of Life Sciences, also have only one entrance.
due to the necessity to maintain employee safety and ensure the persistence of the collections and fulfill the duties of the AMU Botanical Garden, the Garden remains open to visitors during limited hours from Monday to Friday. As an entity maintaining rich plant collections, including protected, rare and endangered species, as well as species requiring regular care, we cannot afford the risk of leaving the Garden unattended if one of the employees is diagnosed with coronavirus infection. This would result in the complete closure of the Garden and most likely irreversible loss of some of our valuable collections.
We invite you for walks, but please follow the recommendations, i.e. maintain social distance and war masks when maintaining a safe distance is impossible.
