The Gardens of Appeltern is ideally suited as a place of inspiration and experience. New gardens are laid out all year round and surprising plant combinations are used. We always have more ideas than practical possibilities. Missing financial resources is also sometimes a problem. We then save the ideas for later, until we can put the idea or part of it into practice.
That’s how it has been for years. We made ‘clipping’ folders of all the things we encountered along the way and saw in magazines and trade journals. We have quite a few in stock now. It’s a shame really, because nobody sees them there. We therefore decided to show our clippings here so that everyone can get inspiration from them.
All our clippings were therefore already published somewhere in the magazines of, among others, Growth & Bloom, Garden Season, Tuinen.nl, Tuinontwerp, Uit de Regio, Tuin en Landschap, LandIdee, and probably many more. We advise everyone to take out a number of subscriptions just like us. The images we collected are only a fraction of their valuable total content.
In De Tuinen van Appeltern we use clippings from garden magazines to keep renewing our example gardens in an appealing way. The garden magazines keep us abreast of the latest trends and we are inspired by the design, decorations and all kinds of combinations. Curious how we do that?!

After a garden design is ready, you can think about the planting. It can be difficult to decide for yourself where the best plant species can be planted. You might consider having a planting plan drawn up for your garden. With a well-thought-out plan, you can be sure that all plants will come into their own and create exactly the atmosphere you have in mind. We offer tailor-made planting plans that are fully tailored to your wishes and the amount of time you want to spend on maintenance.

Because we like to share our inspiration, we have uploaded all the clippings on Pinterest. Follow De Tuinen van Appeltern ‘s account on Pinterest to see them all and save them for later!
