The Garden Guide

Arboretum Trompenburg

The arboretum is about 12 acres and dates back to 1820.  It has been open to the public since 1958.  There are national collections of oaks, rhododendrons, conifers and hostas.  Plants are well labelled.  The site is 4m below sea level so canals are used for drainage.
