Garden rules

1. Walk on the paths and walkways and avoid invading ornamental or experimental plant beds.

2. Do not remove or damage plants or their parts. This rule also protects visitors from contact with possibly toxic or otherwise dangerous plant material.

3. Do not litter and use the appropriate bins to throw away any rubbish.

4. Guides and chaperones of school groups must ensure that the visit is conducted in an orderly fashion and that the students are always under direct supervision.

5. No animals are allowed into the garden (except for registered guide dogs), not even on a leash. Bicycles, skateboards, scooters, rollerblades etc. are also prohibited.

6. The introduction of any plant material, including dried, is not allowed unless it has been expressly authorized.

7. The introduction of games or other recreational material (balls, kites, frisbees etc.) is not allowed.

8. Photography and films are only permitted for personal use. Any other form of recording re-quires written permission from the Director.
