Garden Jiří Sládek, Malý Osek

We are able offer a visit of very mature universal rock garden and natural garden in cooler nest placed to the northern bottom of Brdy Mts. The cooler microclimate with small brook and great care of the owner make an oasis after visiting gardens in hot Czech Karst. Soil is neutral to acid here so everybody enjoys nice collection of rhododendrons, rare conifers, woodland plants and spring bulbs. Alpines are seen in groups of troughs and small outcrops made from different stones. There is pleasant turf and fresh baked refreshment offered by Mrs. Sládková. The owner Jiří Sládek is lover of experiments with rock garden plants including dwarf Daphnes. Pond is very natural enhanced with horizontal layers of limestone slabs and colours of nice shrubs and smaller conifers. Acers are in good shape here, Cedrus atlantica is shaped into friendly gate.
