    As early as 1704, the Berggarten started as a mulberry orchard. Elector Sophie had such a great interest in strange plants that she, as later, also provided her daughter Charlotte with a portion of her "needle money" for the purchase of new plants. The Berggarten served more and more the cultivation and care of rare plants.
    1706 possessed the Berggarten such a large mulberry plantation that for about 100 years, the silkworms of the Royal silkworm manufactory in Hameln could be fed with their leaves. Despite these successes, however, the crops then gradually disappeared from the mountain garden, which turned more and more into a park landscape and whose plant diversity was constantly expanded.
