Linnaean plants at Hammarby

The greatest treasure from Linnaeus's own garden is preserved. Around forty species have survived since the days of Linnaeus. Most likely they are remnants from Hortus Upsaliensis, present-day Linnaeus Garden in Uppsala. These species are an unvaluable biological and cultural heritage. 

Linnaeus's garden and orchard at Hammarby has became overgrown and assumed a woodland character, now known as "The Park".
