We grow over 200 species of tree, shrubs and creepers and around 150 herbaceous species forest plants in the garden. The main purpose of Putt Myra Forest Garden is exploring forest gardening as a growing technology in the Swedish climate. We focus on finding suitable established techniques for starting positions and put a lot of effort into finding good plant for the northern forest gardens, we then spreads further through our nursery operations.
