Massive bamboo shoots

Massive bamboo shoots30 years ago I fell in love with bamboo. I wanted to try bamboo in my garden, started a botanical garden (De Groene Prins) and am still in love with my fascinating bamboo. I have now had a strong bamboo carport for 10 years (of course from my own garden!) And I regularly eat home grown fresh bamboo shoots. Countless species have been planted out in our botanical garden.

Jubaea, Rhapidophyllum, Butia and Trachycarpus palms have arrived!

For the more patient among you we also have seedlings …
(Be aware that this rare palm is not suited to beginners! I also have palms which are less demanding ..)

We also have a few varieties of Butia in various sizes. For example, Butia capitata,  and of course various Trachycarpus, such as the wonderful ‘Wensan’ with its circular leaves!

Pallet deliveries abroad

This autumn we sent a packaged Camellia to a client in Budapest. It took 12 days for the parcel to be delivered by the Dutch ‘Postnl’ company. So from now to reduce the risk of accidents to our precious plants we are advising foreign clients to accept deliveries by pallet only!
