Rose garden was created in 1964. In the center of the Rose garden the statue of Carl Linnaeus welcomes the visitors. He was the great botanist and scientist of 18th century. There are some fifty species of roses in the garden, mostly older sorts such as bush roses, park roses, wild roses and climbing roses.
The roses were beautiful and smelled pleasantly therefore I would spend much time there but I wanted to see the Herb garden as well.
The Herb Garden contains some one hundred herbs, medicinal plants and decorative plants that have a long history. In the 1890s a small kitchen garden with about 50 edible plants was created here, in which the most common types of grain, forage and domestic plants were represented. A new, somewhat larger herb garden was laid out in 1914 on the same site.
I tried to take photos including the labels because I didn't know some herbs and could only recognize the most popular herbs.
