A map of Sparoza

This new set of maps of Sparoza and detailed lists of plants in the garden have been created on a pro bono basis by horticulturist-landscape architect and MGS member Dr Lena Anathasiadou with the aid of AUTh landscape architecture students Alexandros Mpantogias and Antonia Psaropoulou. The designs are based on the plant inventory compiled by MGS members Sally Razelou and Marie Ruffier-Monet in 2020 and on hand-made plans drawn by Jennifer Gay in 2001.

The master plan (below) shows a key to individual areas of the garden, each of which has its own detailed map and list of plants.
