mesterhazypinetum(6)November 15, 2011

Mr. Frantisek Borovec is a famous czech conifer breeder with far over 100 new selections. He started broom hunting in the 90's with Franz Etzelstorfer in the Austrian Alps for Pinus cembras. He has about 20 "historical" brooms, which are 10-13 years old.

His garden contains also plants from his friends. Let's walk together in the garden.
