Welcome to visitors from outside NL


Inspiration for plant lovers

Our nursery & gardens and this website are being visited by more and more plant lovers from outside the Netherlands. We appreciate your interest in our plants, our gardens and our special activities; you're more than welcome to visit!

At the moment this site is only in dutch, which could be a problem for most of you. We hope to realise an english version in the near future. For now we can give you the following basic information and tips about using this site, getting inspiration on special plants and visiting the nursery.

The nursery and gardens are open from March till November. You're welcome on tuesday through saturday, 10.00-17.00. From April till June also open each sunday and during Good Friday, Easter, Ascension Day and Pentecost. From July till November only the first and third sunday of the month, apart from the weekdays.

Mail order is not possible at the moment.

Finding plants

You can browse through our catalogue by clicking on the picture of the Echinacea with the text 'PLANTEN CATALOGUS' (upper right of every page).

To indicate the conditions in which the plants will flourish we use symbols that are international. It's good to know the meaning of the following dutch words:

  • Kleur: color
  • Bloeitijd: flowering time
  • Hoogte: height
  • Standplaats: light conditions (full sun/partly shade/shady)
  • Bodem: humidity of the soil
  • Winterhardheid: hardiness


Plant Collections

We hold the Dutch National Plant Collections of Salvia and Echinacea. Further on we specialise in Epimediums and unusual woodland plants, ferns, prairie plants, ornamental grasses and jungle plants. In spring we have a wide range of Clematis and annuals. In autumn we offer a nice collection of fruit trees.


Buying plants

The nicest and most inspiring way to acquire our plants is to visit our nursery. If needed, we are happy to show you around.

Mail order in the EU or to the UK is not possible at the moment.

You can ask us to bring plants to the plant fairs in which we participate. Just send an email at least a week before the event takes place.
