“In preparation for this big initiative, we planted hundreds of thousands of plants last autumn, which are now blooming,”says head gardener Anders Stålhand about the collaborative effort between Gunnebo House and Gardens, Liseberg Amusement Park, the Garden Society of Gothenburg, the City of Gothenburg and the Botanical Garden.
On 2 July, a forgotten part of the Botanical Garden, the Smithska Valley, will be celebrated with the Take a Walk on the Wild Side event. “We’ve updated and raised the level of care of large parts of the garden, and around a thousand lilies will be blooming,” says Stålhand. “It’ll also get much easier to get to the very top of the mountain with stunning views across Gothenburg.”
