NEW HERBACEOUS BORDER

 Whs5680-bearbeitet

Our new herbaceous border opposite the display glasshouses is taking off this summer! Visitors enjoy the huge diversity of flowers and get new and exciting ideas for their own gardens at home.

Inspired by the naturalistic designs of the “New Dutch Wave” founded by the famous Dutch garden designer Piet Oudolf, our horticulturist also mixed in some elements of an English border. Adapting to climate change, we increasingly shift to drought-tolerant plants.
