The orangery & greenhouses
The orangery in the baroque park was built in 1850. It was Carl Jedvard Bonde who had it erected in memory of trustee Anders Lidstrand. Unlike most orangeries in Sweden, this orangery is still used for its original purpose, namely the winter storage of exotic plants.
The orangery is usually closed, but is shown during booked guided tours. The greenhouses at Ericsberg date back to the 18th century. An orangery was probably built on the greenhouse hill already in the middle of the 18th century. Sometime at the beginning of the 19th century, the greenhouses below the former were added. the orangery. The greenhouses are a unique example of the self-sustaining culture that existed on the large estates in the past, when you would have your own cultivation of exotic fruits and berries. Most of such greenhouses have disappeared today, or are about to collapse. Thanks to continuous care, the greenhouses at Ericsberg have been spared this fate, and thanks to this can display a treasure of plants that few have.
Here there are preserved fig trees from the middle of the 19th century and what is probably among Sweden’s oldest peach trees, from the late 19th century. Fruit, vegetables and spices are still grown here today. The greenhouses are usually closed, but are shown when guided tours are booked.
