The Medicine gardens in Tranekær

The Physic Gardens contain more than 450 different types of plant, which are either relevant for present-day medicine or have been previously used in folk medicine. There are fire themed gardens: “The respiro-circulatory garden”, “The urogenital garden”, “The digestion, metabolism and nutrition garden” and the “The neural and movement garden”. The gardens are surrounded by an aboretum, containing many trees that have medical significance”.  Each themed garden covers 800 m2, and each plant has a brief description on its sign.  When the Physic Gardens are complete, there will be six themed gardens.

The Physic Gardens are looked after and planned by volunteers, most of whom are senior citizens.
