Historical fruit tree cultivars are carefully selected to renew the orchard at Tāšu (Telsen) estate in Grobiņa region, Latvia. The estate flourished in the 18th century, and the orchard pleased the inhabitants of the estate with beautiful apple tree blossoms in spring and fruit harvest in autumn. At present, the orchard is in the process of renovation. The layout of pathways is planned to follow the principles and contour lines of a regular Baroque garden park as found in garden archaeology. Lots of effort and consultation with professional tree breeders is put in search for the historical tree varieties to reproduce the garden’s authentic features. On prior arrangement, visitors will spend 1-2 hour walking through the estate building, the garden and the park while listening to fascinating stories about experiences from historical gardens in Europe and their replication in Latvia.
