Sunny autumn in the Czech Republic: Green Arrow’s trip to the nurseries and gardens of Prague and Brno

Czech nurseries are well known among gardeners and industry professionals. But imagine them behind the scenes, not all. Those who went on a trip with the Green Arrow to the Czech Republic in October 2016 were lucky: this week we not only visited one of the most remarkable countries in the world, but also visited 14 nurseries, got acquainted with their range, talked to the owners and employees and just had a great time.

Among the nurseries that we visited were recognized market leaders and less well-known, but rapidly developing firms. Anyway, the Green Arrow travelers were able to see which technologies they use, talk with them on various topics and share their experiences. And there really is something to share – after all, our group included mostly industry professionals, some of whom have been doing what they love for more than a dozen years.
A special pleasure is walking around Prague, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.

This is the St. Vitus Cathedral, one of the main attractions of the city:

“The Wall of John Lennon.” It appeared in the 60s. Artists, actors, writers, musicians gathered here … On one of the walls of the Maltese garden, people wrote lines from John Lennon’s songs, accompanying the texts with their drawings. Now the “Wall of John Lennon” is officially protected by the Order of Malta and is its heritage as a monument to the era.

Swan Lake … No, it had nothing to do with ballet. And this is not a lake, but the Vltava River … how else can you ca Butll a place in which SUCH the number of these white beauties floats? And after all the birds are migratory, but they seem to be not even going to fly away …

There are 34 such birds here. The sculptural composition is installed on the platform in the Vltava River near the Museum of Modern Art Kampa. These figures are made of recycled plastic bottles and were installed in 2008 as an exhibit of the museum. At night they glow. Prague penguins, as conceived by their creators, march in protest against the irrational use of natural resources.

A few more photos are published in our photo gallery.

But it is better, of course, to see once than read a hundred times …
That is why we invite with us in our travels!
