Tropski rastlinjak

It seems that the University Botanic Gardens Ljubljana has always operated according to the guidelines of modern gardens. Some plants from different localities have been in the garden for 210 years. Even more, in some of the localities where they grew then, they are no more today. In the garden, however, they have been preserved from those days. This is important due to the possible reintroduction of former habitats. Such an example of re-introduction is the settlement of Fleischmann's parsnip species in the castle yard - that is, in Ljubljana Castle, where the plant once grew. The University Botanic Gardens Ljubljana has been the guardian of domestic flora for 210 years. In the book, we learn about the protection of different species throughout history and where all the plants from Ljubljana traveled across Europe. In addition, the book also shows the conservation efforts of garden managers and today's work in the field of plant species protection.
