Exotic plants and scented roses.

The manor park is known for its many lovely and unusual deciduous trees, such as walnut, sweet chestnut, tulip tree and the stately, over 100 year old ginko biloba. There are also fantastic perennial borders and a scented rose garden planted with old roses. The borders in the rose garden were laid in 1934 and skilled gardeners keep everything looking tip top. The lime rich soil on Kinnekulle mountain and the garden’s position on the west slope facing Lake Vänern, has created a favourable climate which makes it possible to grow exotic plants. Art exhibitions are exhibited in the large greenhouse. Come and be inspired!

The garden is open every day from the middle of April until the middle of September. You can bring your own picnic or eat in the café. There’s also a restaurant. Plenty of parking for both cars and coaches. Dogs on leads are welcome. Public toilets. Guided tours can be booked. Entry to the garden is 20 SEK/adult.
