Join Flower Power Day in the Botanical Garden of Lund University!

Welcome to a day when the power of plants will be explored!

Where: Botanical Garden of Lund University

When: 25th of May, 11:00 – 15:00


  • Plant senses. Exhibition in the garden.
  • Blossom exchange – Swap, Grow, ShareJoin Sustainable University (HU) to celebrate the beauty and utility of plants. Our plant swap is a perfect opportunity for gardening and plant enthusiasts to exchange their beloved plants, seedlings or seeds. Bring your plants, share their stories and get some others in exchange. Roll up your sleeves for a microgreen hands-on workshop where you’ll plant your own cress to take home. We will provide the materials and instructions, so whether you’re a seasoned gardener or a curious newbie, you will have a day of green-thumb fun and sustainable living insights.
  • Wild plants in science. The Biological Museum shows how they take care of botanical material.
  • Leopard’s bane and lily of the valley – perennials with a history. Linnea Oskarsson from the National Gene Bank gives a guided tour of the plants in the Clone archive (in Swedish).
  • Plant dyes. A small exhibition about yarn dyeing with natural dyes from plants.
  • BioBlitz at the Botanical Garden! For the first time,  a BioBlitz will be hosted in the Botanical Garden! In BioBlitz, we can try to identify as many organisms as possible within the Lund University Botanical Garden in a limited time. By working alongside scientists from the Biology Department, you will have a unique opportunity to gain skills in identifying species. In the process, you can collect important data on the biodiversity in the Botanical Garden and make an inventory of species that will prove invaluable to our biological knowledge. 
  • Plants as sculptural material. How can plants help us to express ourselves, and what can we learn from their expression? Friedel Weiser from Malmö Art Academy presents an art installation with bamboo from the garden.
  • Friends of Botan. Supporting association will be present in the garden all day.
