Gardens and Horticulture of The Netherlands
Boasting a 44% share of the worldwide trade in floraculture products and pole position in global exports of live trees, plants, bulbs and cut flowers, the Netherlands is at the very heart of the international horticulture industry. The country also plays a key role in the development of new types of plant with 65% of the 1,800 new varieties that enter the European market originating in the Netherlands. Our horticultural tours are specially devised to give students a unique insight into this thriving industry, taking in key events such as the spring bulb festival at Keukenhof Gardens and the daily flower auction Flora Holland Aalsmeer, as well as important gardens, research centres and nurseries including The Gardens of Appeltern, Hortus Botanicus and Anco Pure Vanda.
