The Arctic Glasshouse
The Arctic Glasshouse in the Copenhagen Botanical Garden was built in 1959. For 15 years it has been used for cultivation and experimental work with more than 100 different species, mainly from Greenland. A short paper on the history of the house, some technical details and the prefloration periods of the species grown in the house appeared last year in the volume of “Botanisk Tidsskrift”published on the occasion of the Centenary of the Garden. A more elaborate survey of the technical arrangement has been translated into English and is available on application to Mr H.P. Hjerting of the Copenhagen Botanical Garden.
