2021 annual report

With the country just out of lockdown, our two most active members opened this garden year with a visit to Keukenhof. We then visited the blue and white world of Franny Stolk in Voorschoten, a world that has featured in photo spreads in many an international magazine.

In the summer months we went to Hazenleger in Noordwijk and to Hof der Herinneringen in Pijnacker, an imaginative garden with lots of paths and unexpected corners and vistas. WestlandsTrio, a large garden with water features, a salvia nursery and a pick-your-own garden were on the programme for September. We ended the year with a visit to Zwarte Tulp in Lisse, a museum with a lovingly tended collection on the history of the bulb-growing area.

But an annual report also makes us look forward! Although we still have a number of active members who visit a garden or museum each month, we would very much like to welcome new members. Garden or plant knowledge is not required, only enthusiasm. Send an email to jokeploem@hotmail.com and join us on one of our excursions.
