Slessor Gardens: Baltic Connections

Dundee has maintained trading partnerships throughout the world to this day. In the early 1800's ports in the Baltic Sea were regularly receiving vessels from Dundee. Such ports included Stockholm, Gothenburg, Copenhagen, Riga, Danzig and St Petersburg. This garden takes inspiration from the colours and textures of the Baltic and Northern European regions.
