Interesting facts
Each botanical garden has its own unique character and atmosphere. It is created by all living creatures which inhabit the garden as well as by people who visit it and work here. Fruit trees seem to have an important decorative value, especially in the spring. Cherry trees (Prunus) and apple trees (Malus) are particularly beautiful when blossoming.

What is especially significant for our garden is the fact that we gathered a collection of several protected species such as: hart's -tongue (Phyllitis) and ostrich fern (Matteuccia), on the rockery yellow foxglove (Digitalis) and meadow safron (Colchicum).

We also have some protected bushes and bigger perennial plants: mezereon (Daphne), belladonna (Atropa), dittany (Dictamnus) and goat's - beard (Aruncus)
(Daphne mezereum)                                   (Atropa belladonna)                                   (Dictamnus albus)                          (Aruncus dioicus)

Our garden would be incomplete if it was not for the animals which live here. You can easily encounter  mallards, wood pigeons, fieldfares and tits as well as some rarer species of birds such as woodpeckers and flycatchers. There are also some rodents, amphibians and reptiles represented by edible frogs, tree frogs and grass snakes, insects - buterflies, beetles, weighty, bees and bumblebees. Squirrels, weasels and hedgehogs inhabit our garden too.
