Anything new this season at the University Botanical Garden-Balchik

The last month of October was full of dynamics at University Botanic Garden-Balchik. In addition to carring in the large-sized cacti and succulents from the God's Garden, intensified activities to replace seasonal blooms have begun. The summer beauties that many admired now give way to the autumn-spring splendor of seasonal plants such as violets, tulips, daffodils, shibo, forget-me-nots and more.

60 500 pcs. seedlings roots are located on the ground floor in different gardens. 50 varieties of violets (Viola x wittrockiana, Viola cornuta), forget-me-nots (Myosotis sp.), Flatbread (Silene sp.), Shibo (Cheiranthus sp.), Coins (Bellis perennis).

Over 54,000 pcs. are planted bulbous plants in the gardens, with more than 50,000 pcs. of these are only tulips. Yes, this spring visitors to the University Botanical Garden-Balchik will be able to see 32 brand new varieties of tulips from different groups. These will be 1/3 of all the tulips that will bloom.

From the beginning to the third week of March, the flowering of the first bulb species is traditionally expected to begin.
