The garden’s plan

In the Garden we will see over 100 plant species possessing medicinal properties. Both common and very rare ones – which we will be unable to find walking along the tourist trail - are gathered here. Next to the medicinal herbs and bush plates filled with the specific plant’s description and purposes can be found. The plant collection assembled in the Karkonosze Herb and Bush Garden comes from the Karkonosze Gene Bank plant breeding in Jagniątków.

The Karkonosze Herb and Bush Garden is divided into sections presenting species of individual vegetation levels in the Karkonosze. The plants have also been grouped according to the habitat type in which they occur. Thus, we can see here the plants growing in the foothills level, upper and lower subalpine forests and on the meadows, forming tall-herbs, grassy vegetations, groups of blueberries and alpine grasses, or settling on inaccessible ledges and rock crevices in the alpine and subalpine zones.
