Dutch Landscaping


Some of the prettiest and best loved flowers are used in Dutch gardens. Tulips are perhaps the most well known. Narcissus are popular as well. Calla lilies, though less known, are truly an extraordinarily shaped flower.

Besides being known for their tulips, Dutch gardens are known for making efficient use of light and space. Part of this undoubtedly comes from living in a densely populated area. So, the Dutch have used this "problem" to their advantage in their creative and wise use of space. Think about this if you have a tiny plot behind your home or apartment or only have a balcony sized garden. How can you use the problem of small space to inspire you to wisely use every available option to create a Garden of Eden where you live? Narcissus, also known as daffodils, are available in our online plant nursery.
