Melbo Manor’s museum garden was designed in the English landscape style in 1890, and today there is a range of old perennials collected from Vesterålen and Lofoten.

Melbo Manor has been awarded NOK 50,000. from the Directorate of Agriculture for the 2023 season.
The money from the Norwegian Agricultural Directorate is money for maintenance and operation for those who are part of the Norwegian genetic resource network. The garden at Melbu will be a duplicate garden for plants collected in Lofoten in previous projects.
Most of the plants are therefore in the garden outside the Lofoten Museum. Otherwise, there is also old garden material from Vesterålen that we ourselves have collected or “received back” from collected material in the Botanical Garden in Tromsø.
