Management of orangery plants in Historic Gardens

Orangeries can be considered as a kind of symbiosis between plants and garden architecture. Some plants would not be able to survive in our climate without the protection delivered by the orangeries and without the plants, orangeries would be meaningless and not even exist.

The exchange of knowledge about the care and maintenance of the plant stocks in the orangeries, about the preservation and development of the orangery buildings and related outdoor spaces and the about plant design and practical horticultural expertise are important.

Webinar
In the webinar we will talk about orangeries, about their plants and about their structures. The plant aspects are likely to cover the planting substrates, water and nutrient requirements, fertilisation, plants in the winter quarters, pruning. When it comes to structures, the history of orangeries, the modernisation of orangeries (e.g. to reduce the carbon footprint) and the design of the spaces around the buildings will be addressed.

Workshop
The outcomes of the webinar will then be followed up and practical guidance and advice will be shared on two characteristic sites. Among the ten glasshouses/greenhouses/orangeries at the Botanical Garden of the University of Münster there is one of the few remaining orangeries in the style of the classicism (built in 1840). At Schloss Dyck the orangery is the key element in the orangery island where the parterre has got a contemporary design in the year 2002.
