The Garden Catalogue

The management of the collection of living plants implies the maintenance of a catalogue and the preparation of labels.

The basis of the collection in a Botanical Garden is the reciprocal exchange of seeds with other Botanical Gardens around the world. This process allows us to obtain plants from other countries.

The Geneva Botanical Garden corresponds with around 800 Botanical Gardens worldwide.

The seeds that we order are for renewing, diversifying and enriching the collection of the different sectors of the Garden, in particular:

1. These seeds, when received, are registered in a computerized database, the Catalogue of the Garden, along with all the relevant information on the plant: nomenclature, origin, place of collection, etc.
Download the report of 2014 (in french) or flip through the pages.

2. A unique registration number is assigned to the plant and used throughout its “life,” so as to track its passage through the different stages: planting, transplanting, introduction into a collection and planting.

3. A label is made as soon as the plant has sufficiently developed to become part of a collection.

Thus, all of the plants visible in our Garden are, for the most part, grown from seeds obtained through such exchanges.

Our annual and perennial flower-beds are an exception as we use plants from horticultural production. They are planted in our ornamental flower-beds and have a seasonal function. As they are temporary their labelling is simplified to include their common and horticultural names.
