The Botanical Garden of the University of Latvia develops two thematic expositions on an area of 4,000 square meters: ” Morphological and biological beds ” and “Medicinal plants“. Both expositions will increase the knowledge and awareness of visitors on plant species diversity and its role, as well as the various possibilities of using plants.

Grassland Diary

To find the best way how to increase the number of plant species in grasslands, a seven-year experiment is underway in the Botanical Garden of the University of Latvia. During the experiment, six approaches of restoration of semi-natural grassland will be tested and compared. Some are sown with seeds collected in natural meadows or filled with soil taken from them, others differ only in the mode of mowing. There are five test plots in each option. The Grassland Diary follows how a lawn turns into a species-rich grassland over the years.
