We had a glimpse of the garden center
as soon as we got off the bus.

First our guide took us through the garden.

The garden was more like a forest
but with a huge variety of plants.
This is a huge rock face with mosses.

This is abies koreana
or Korean Fir, 'Silber perl' .

This larch is 20 years old.

This olive is called Quick Silver.

After looking at trees it was a surprise to
come across this small arrangement in a pot.

A little woodland meadow.

This unusual spruce, picea acrocona,
carries its cones upright.

These may be larch, Blue Sparkler,
and Hortsmannns Recurva.

It wasn't all boreal forest;
here is a cultivated spot.

We saw a small version of this maple, acer
campestre, in the forest. It grows slowly
because it has less chlorophyll.

The spruces and larches are easier to identify
when laid out in rows with labels.
The storage space in the bus filled up quickly.
