Botaniska offers a variety of horticultural expression and beauty.

They can be seen for example in the Rock Garden, and are at their loveliest when blooming in the spring.

Can you bring your dog into the garden?
Dogs are not allowed into the garden during 1 mars - 30 september.
The reason why dogs are not allowed into the garden this time of year is that Botaniska, apart from other gardens and parks, have a very extensive, fragile and unique plant material. Think of the garden as a museum. The vulnerability is especially at its peak during the growing period. At the same time we know that many wish to walk their dogs here.
Therefore, during 1 october - 28 feburary, when most vulnerable plants are resting, dogs are welcome into the garden.
