Orchid Exhibition

March witnesses the flowering peak of numerous exotic orchids. Many of these extraordinary plants open their blossoms in March – some capturing the eye with their vibrant colours, others with their peculiar form.

Estonian Grapes Exhibition
Sep 11 – Sep 13

Grape growing has gained momentum and table grapes are increasingly grown also in Estonia. No wonder, as breeding has made substantial progress over the past fifty years and a large number of Russian and Ukrainian table grape varieties are now available to our grape farmers. Local grape growing is also supported by the recognition that we can grow our grapes in a significantly more environmentally friendly and therefore, healthier way. The pests harassing grape farmers to the south of us have yet to adjust to the Estonian climate.
The Saare-Tõrvaaugu gardening farm near Vändra in Pärnu County will provide an exhibition display chosen from roughly 150 varieties in their collection, organise a grape tasting and sell both grapes and plants at the venue. Grape farmer Mart Laul will introduce grape varieties grown in open fields in North Estonia. The exhibition provides an excellent opportunity to check out grapes grown in Estonia – both the varieties suitable for growing in open fields and in greenhouses will be exhibited. Visitors will have a chance to inquire about different grape varieties and get useful tips on growing grape vines.
The Saare-Tõrvaaugu gardening farm will also exhibit their watermelons and melons, grown in an environmentally friendly way.

May 14 – 17 Exhibition of Saintpaulia

The diversity of saintpaulias, flowering in the spring, is incredible. They are commonly known as African violets but have no real relation to actual violets.
In the family Gesneriaceae there are 2900 species and 139 genera, among them trees, shrubs, herbaceous plants, lianas and epiphytes. In addition to saintpaulias, the best-known representatives of this family include sinningia, codonanthe, magic flowers, lipstick plants, cape primroses, flame violets, goldfish plants, chirita and others.
The exhibition is organised in collaboration with private collectors. During the exhibition rare varieties of saintpaulias, as well as saintpaulia substrate and special fertilisers are also sold. Consultation on the cultivation of Gesneriaceae is available during the exhibition opening hours.

May 8- 11 Exhibition of tulips and other early bulbs

Tulips are one of the most loved and most grown spring bulbs, the colours and forms of which have mesmerized people for centuries. Over the years, thousands of tulip varieties have been bred, many of which also decorate our gardens. Because of their richness of colour, diversity of blooms and early flowering, tulips are irreplaceable in spring gardens.
The exhibition presents very different tulip varieties as cut flowers: both new and also older tulip varieties are introduced.
In addition to tulips, many other much-loved spring flowers like daffodils, hyacinths and crocuses are on display. The flowering of tulips, daffodils , hyacinths, fritillaries, stars-of-Bethlehem and trilliums can also be enjoyed in the outdoor gardens.
The exhibition in the Tallinn Botanic Garden Palm House is open from 11.00 to 18.00.
