International Specialist Nursery Days Bingerden

At the International Specialist Nursery Days at Bingerden, plants get VIP treatment! Nurseries bring a staggering choice of rare and unusual collections. The show is staged in historic gardens. Each year a main theme is chosen for the show, twice a day there are talks relating to this theme given by well-known garden experts. But most importantly, you can browse through all the plants for sale and fill bag after bag with treasures, which you can park in the "plant parking" until you are ready to go home. A day at Bingerden is a must for every garden enthusiast. If you have not gardened before we are confident that you will start when you have visited our International Specialist Nursery Days!
