Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and a happy New year!

Nusery ‘De Groene Prins’-  initially startet as bamboo nursery on 1 ha paddock – has evaluated into a botanical garden annex nursery of rather unknown exotical garden plants. Many people have been inspired here and bought newly introduced plants. In the years to come new still unknown plants will become available after being tested. Heavy loam in our area appears fertile in terms of innovation in the green world: my new colleagues Byron and Robert will gradually take over the botanical project and give it a new impulse. And I am very glad with it! The valuable plant collection and it’s knowledge is not lost and in Byron’s and Robert’s good hands.

They will continue organic cultivation, enrich the assortment with as yet unknown fruit trees; expand the website and prepare for climate change.

Thanks to them renewal in the green world will continue!

Botanical garden and nursery

De Groene Prins is an exotic plant nursery and botanical garden in northern Holland. Here you can see which beautiful exotics do well in our west-European climate!

Eucalyptus often recovers from severe frost

Ecualyptus-viminalis - very hardy

After last winter’s (2021) severe cold spell, we have seen that a number of species, such as Eucalyptus viminalis (photo) and Eucalyptus dalrympleana can quickly grow back from the top of the root. Simply cut the dead trunk off above that!
