On 3 September 2021, our foundation garden team responsible for the implementation of the ecological garden construction project in Krzyżowa had the great pleasure to visit the Arboretum in Wojsławice. A walk around the garden with Mr. Tomasz Dymny, deputy director for the arboretum, who with great passion and cordial hospitality introduced individual parts of the garden, provided us with a lot of inspiration.

We learned about a number of horticultural solutions used in the arboretum for plant cultivation: we found out how the planting quarters are created, what materials are used, for example, in the construction of edgings, what thickness is the mulch used, how many hectares of garden are there for one gardener and much, much more.

The Wojsławice arboretum is also a rich history, the origins of which date back to the mid-nineteenth century, when the naturally growing forest in this area began to be transformed into a manor garden. Since 1988, the arboretum has been a branch of the Botanical Garden of the University of Wrocław. Its area is currently 62 ha, with over 8,000 species of plants growing - these numbers can make you dizzy, especially when you see them with your own eyes.  Our Friday walk lasted three hours - a lot for one time, but definitely not enough to see all the nooks and crannies of this beautiful garden.
