Welcome to the OpdeHaar open garden of John en Joyce Ramsbotham in Hoevelaken

 OpdeHaar garden is an open garden in the woodland in Hoevelaken, on the border between Gelderland and Utrecht, The Netherlands

This garden is open to the public by appointment

Especially suitable for groups of 8 to 50 people

7 different style gardens in one garden (ca 5 acres)

A unique landscape in the middle of an ancient wooded swamp

Over 4500 different plants, trees and shrubs

Renowned for its woodland and shade tolerant plants

Most plants are labelled

On Saturday 14th April 2018 we have an open day. Hopefully our large collection of camellias will be in flower.

We have a powerpoint presentation  on colour and contrast and shadow plants in our garden with more than 100 photographs. Something for the winter months perhaps.

 We are a member of the Nederlandse Tuinen Stichting and Groei en Bloei Nijkerk
