For three glorious months from June 28 until September 28, one of Northern Europe’s largest flower and garden exhibitions will present the best of Scandinavian and international garden design.
Four stunning but highly diverse parks will each play a part in the Gardens of Gothenburg Exhibition. Gothenburg Botanical Garden, Gunnebo House and Gardens, Liseberg Park and the Garden Society of Gothenburg (Trädgårdsföreningen) each will offer a totally different experience for visitors and there will be something of interest for amateur gardeners, horticultural academics and even those with a mere window box to tend to.
The Botanical Garden
The city’s famous Botanical Garden is a place of beauty and learning with more than 20,000 different species of plants. During the exhibition visitors will be greeted Ulf Nordfjell’s Chelsea Flower Show Gold Medal winning Tribute to Linnaeus Garden. There will also be lots of new perennials including a special focus on Dahlias.
Gunnebo House & Gardens
Gunnebo is considered as one of the foremost neo-classical country estates in Northern Europe. The exhibition will provide fascinating encounters between history and the modern day by showing off distinctly contemporary and organic gardens against the contrasting background of this historical setting. One of the future kitchen gardens is created by American Topher Delaney.
Liseberg is one of Europe’s leading amusement parks. For the exhibition, Liseberg has developed new garden of around 20,000 square meters. This has been designed to inspire and feed the imagination, a space that visitors can explore at their leisure.
The Garden Society
This historic ornamental garden is one of Sweden‘s finest, in particular beloved for its Rose Garden. Preservation, reconstruction and renewal will be in focus during the year of 2008. Some of the most prominent landscape architects and garden designers in Sweden and Europe have been invited to create new woodlands and theme gardens
