  Seleger Moor Park
by barbskie

Once an upland moor in Rifferswil where Robert Seleger had found that the soil is the same s that in Holland and Northern Germany where Rhododendrons are cultivated. It was in the year 1953 when he started planting his first Azalean on a piece of moor. Unluckily, a bitterly cold winter destroyed some of those plants and only few had survived. This experience had brought him to travel to far off places till to the high mountains of Nepal. He crossed his collections to other sorts thus creating a differenty coloured varieties and are winter hard kinds. Today, this over 120,000 m2 park has served to the public for both young and old. Worth visiting!
