Plant collections

The collections and exhibitions in the Botanical Garden are open to the public.

Plant labels and documentation

Botanical Garden maintains a documented collection of living plants. Name tags (labels) play an important part in the management of this kind of documented scientific collection.

Label entries:

  • Plant species name in Finnish
  • Scientific name (genus and species)
  • Family
  • Main range

In addition to the name tags, the plants have a metallic tag referring to the accession in the garden database, which includes plant registration data; date of arrival, identification, name and origin details as well as operation entries (such as sowing and planting history).
