The garden includes close to 500 varieties of plants, they are mainly woody species.

The entire collection of the garden is arranged in a number of thematic sections:

The department of plant systematics is located at the entrance to the garden. On both sides of the path mainly coniferous trees and shrubs grow. There are plants growing here, both from Poland and a lot of varieties of foreign origin.
Some of these plants are well known, as we meet them every day, others are very rare, and often protected.

The department of hydrophylic plants is where there are mostly plants that live in wet or damp environments.

There is a garden pond with the so-called "macrohydropyts," or plants rooted in the bottom and with leaves floating on the water surface or protruding above it. So here you can see the water alison, white lily called sometimes "water lilies" and the yellow water lily.

The geographical department is located in the center of the garden, around a central clearing. Plants growing here come from different parts of the world, such as: Asia, North America, Europe and there are some growing on Polish territory as well.

The department of mountain plants is a rocky hill near the pond garden. Here you can find mountain plants from different regions of the globe.
