Gardening has been very popular in Holland at least since the renaissance and today Holland is the centre of Europe's horticultural industry. There are many Dutch gardens from the Baroque period, though they tend to be on a smaller scale then equivalent French gardens – which makes them closer together and much easier to visit. The character of Dutch gardens can be seen from the aerial photographs on our Dutch Garden Finder pages. Holland produces a high proportion of Europe's plant stock but it is not as evident in gardens as one might expect.
In addition to these Garden Finder entries, please see Garden Tours in Holland for information on tours, self-guided visits tailor-made tours and gardens open to the public in Holland.
