Kwekerij Piet Oudolf

Everything here is as you'd expect if you've been following Piet Oudolf's garden life - except the glasshouses. As the nursery is now closed, they are empty of plants and seem to be taking on a new life as storage of vintage cars.

Piet and Anja's garden rooms are living examples of Piet's plant philosophy - his plantings take their inspiration from nature, and there plants must therefore look spontaneous, though assembled with artistic skill.  He describes this as painting with plants.

Looks like something is living in this whirl
