Botanic garden tour

Green Omsk:
In 1960-70, Omsk got the nickname “garden city”. City owes this title to great extend to the German agronomist Herbert Gense.

On the territory of the botanic garden of Omsk he collected his most valuable collection of trees and shrubs.

Gense had been working on the introduction and acclimatization of plants of Ural- Siberian region. All in all, he created and introduced about 30 new species of trees and shrubs, which are widely used in landscaping of Omsk, in other cities and regions of Siberia and Northern Kazakhstan.

An entry into a guest book:

Just unbelievable - Mr. Gense war a genius! At the same time it is a great pity that he is practically unknown to the outer world. He deserves to be world-known!
