What we offer
Everyone can visit the Garden, learn something and enjoy the colors, shapes, odors and sounds (of course, abiding the Garden rules). If you would like to learn more about the Garden on your own, the information is available from this website or our publications, and for the most inquisitive we recommend a guided tour through the Garden.
Workshops, such as microscopy, photography, origami and flower petal arranging are available for preschool children and pupils (also grownups) upon request.
Postcards and souvenirs (t-shirts, bags, umbrellas, notepads, brooches etc.) are available in the Exhibition pavilion, the kiosk at the Main entrance and in the head office. During the season you can also by plant souvenirs in the Exhibition pavilion, such as endemic Velebit degenia, carnivorous plants and ferns. Other plants (surpluses from our collections, such as annuals, perennials and overgrown potted plants) are available during the spring and autumn sale.
You are free to take memory photos during the visit (usual ‘tourist’ photos), but all professional photographing and filming is possible only with permission from the Head office and charged according to the current PRICE LIST. Space rent for filming commercials, presentations, venues etc. is also available.
Publications & Souvenirs
Number of informative texts about the Garden and its collections are available from this website, info-plates in the Garden and in publications, e.g. guides and booklets available in the Exhibition pavilion, the kiosk at the Main entrance and the Head office. We are currently preparing field guides for specific collections, for instance the succulents, carnivorous plants, trees, Croatian flora etc.

Short tour of the exhibition is also available. During the tour most basic information is given, always adjusted to the groups age and knowledge level.
Photographing, filming & space rent
You are free to take memory photos during your visit (usual ‘tourist’ photos), keeping in mind the Garden rules. All professional photographing and filming is possible only with permission from the Head office and is charged according to the current PRICE LIST. Fashion model, clothes and makeup photographing/filming, irrespective to the later use of the material, is not allowed without the knowledge and the permission of the Head office.
Throughout the year our gardeners propagate (greenhouse plants, shrubs and trees, annuals and perennials) to keep the number and diversity of plants in our collections. Surpluses are sol din the spring and autumn plan sale at affordable prices. The plants are propagated in the ‘old-fashioned’ way – we don’t use fertilizers and don’t have perfect nursery conditions so those plants never look as exuberant as those available from commercial nurseries.
You can help the Garden by donating funds that we will use for building restoration, fixing benches, buying plants, tools etc.
In return, you can adopt a favourite tree or other plant and a bench in the arboretum.
