Visit Op de Haar Garden

 

 

 

 

 

OpdeHaar garden is an 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 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 4000 different plants, trees and shrubs

Renowned for its woodland and shade tolerant plants

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.
