Welcome to OpdeHaar Gardens
John and Joyce Ramsbotham in Hoevelaken, The Netherlands
This website has been revamped, with lots of new photos of the plants in our garden.
On this website, you can click on many of the photos to get a larger image, a slideshow and also (sometimes) more information.
Have patience – it takes a few seconds for all the photos to load.
This website is best viewed in landscape on smartphones and ipads.
