Director of Laboratory: Professor M. Papafotiou

Objects - Aims: 

Object of Laboratory of Floriculture and Landscape Architecture is the teaching and research on:

  • Culture techniques of field and under cover floricultural crops, soilless cultures, applied physiology of growth and flowering, methods of propagation-micropagation, post-harvest physiology and handling, flower arrangement, introduction of new species for cultivation, biology, cultivation and management and science of turfgrasses.
  • Theoretical and applied practices of  Landscape planning in urban, agricultural and forestal environment, studies on  parks plantings, athletic centers, gardens etc.,  landscape reclamation after damage from large scale technical works (road construction etc.), reclamation and development of downgraded regions (Tips, Quarries etc.) aiming at their integration in the natural environment. Studies of environmental impact.

The Laboratory of Floriculture and Landscape Architecture is located in the Krimbas building.
