Plant Col­lec­tion

Plant Col­lec­tion

The tropical greenhouse has a special place among the roughly 90 botanical gardens throughout Germany, because the plant collection concentrates on useful plants of the tropics and subtropics. Around 480 species grow in the 1,200 m² area, including nutritional and luxury foodstuffs along with spice, medicinal, colour, energy, scent, and fiber plants, each with different varieties and origins. Their selection and cultivation are carried out according to the basics of organic agricultural and horticultural practices in a warm climate.
