We invite you to the exhibition "My Beautiful Garden" in the reading room of the Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery Department (room 164) from March 4 to 26.

The literature presented at the exhibition "My Beautiful Garden" will be interesting for beginner gardeners, as well as experienced vegetable growers, gardeners and florists.

On the pages of the books, you will find information about the types of vegetables, flowers, berry shrubs and fruit trees, which are most often grown on homesteads and country plots. As well as some useful tips on growing fruit and vegetable plants, harvesting techniques and storing them.
