The Arctic-Alpine Botanic Garden in Tromsø
« Reply #34 on: June 27, 2019, 08:35:06 PM »
This wonderful garden crops up in  posts  from time to time  and there  is an event  there  now, celebrating their 25th anniversary.  With  neat  timing,   an e-booklet has  been  published -
"Rock Landscape  Concepts  of  Tromsø Arctic-Alpine  Botanic Garden

How to make rock garden landscapes in Tromsø?

The topic has been dealt with by many presentations by staff members of the Botanic Garden in Tromsø. As a result of taking part in an excursion to the mountains of Armenia two years ago, it also became the topic of a cooperation project with Ani Avagyan, Distance Learning Laboratorium, Yerevan State University.

The product is an e-book about making a rock garden. The book was finished just in time for our Garden’s 25th Anniversary, and is based on pictures taken by us, whereas presentation and design was made by Ani.

Our principles are shown through a cavalcade of pictures which primarily can be downloaded to a mobile phone and viewed efficiently.

Here you can see how we simulate granitic outcrops, terminal moraines, screes, how we mix the soil and choose natural rocks. And not the least you will be able to see some of the colourful and partly exclusive plants growing in our rock garden landscapes.

Welcome to a journey through a very special botanic garden!
