… inspiration, relaxation, and the opportunity to broaden your knowledge of over 300 species of herbs. Do you know which herbs help with insomnia, or which have aphrodisiac affects, or attract butterflies and insects?

 

Find Inspiration and Relaxation

Lu & Tiree Chmelar Herb Garden is a unique garden, with over 300 species of medicinal, aromatic, culinary, and ornamental plants. You will find beds that will inspire for your own garden, while children will appreciate the sandbox and a chance to water the herbs. Beds with information panels will teach you about medicinal plants, herbal aphrodisiacs, herbs of myths and legends, dye plants, and plants used for aromatherapy.

Nature Garden Without Borders

Lu & Tiree Chmelar Herb Garden was recognized as the first model Nature Garden in the CR. We do not use pesticides or herbicides, instead we utilize compost, mulch, and green manure fertilizer. You will find insect hotels and a bumble-bee house and a birdbath in the beds. We want our garden to be an undisturbed environmentalparadise for plants and animals, as well as for human visitors. Nature Garden is a program of Czech-Austrian cooperation.

Programs for Children

If you hear children laughing, they are probably watering with little cans, playing in the sandbox, or taking part in one of our programs for children.
