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.

Open garden in the woodland in Hoevelaken, on the border between Gelderland and Utrecht

 

This garden is open to the public on appointment

 

Especially suitable for groups

 

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

 

A unique landscape in the middle of an ancient wooded swamp

Over 4000 different plants, trees and shrubs

Most plants are labelled

 

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.
