In our picking garden you can come and pick a responsible bunch of flowers yourself. Relaxing on your own, a fun outing with friends or family. In addition, you can always come and see for yourself how the flowers are grown in a nature-inclusive way.
How does it work?
Very simple. When you arrive at our self-service flower station, pick up a pair of scissors and a vase that you can fill with a layer of water. This will take you into the picking garden, where you can pick all the blooming flowers you see until your vase is full.

Frequently Asked Questions
The majority of florists and supermarkets offer flowers grown with the help of pesticides, using ground-life-disrupting machines, and which often have to be transported long distances to eventually reach your hands. All those poisons, machines and transport are not doing our planet any good. We take a different approach:only organic products, everything by hand and no transport. This way you can enjoy your flowers just a little more.
In short, yes! Fortunately, more and more people are becoming aware of the negative impact of 'normal consumption' and are looking for ways to contribute to a more sustainable world. More and more picking gardens are appearing worldwide, and we are confident that the demand for local flowers will continue to grow!
Our picking garden opened its doors in the late summer of 2017 as the first picking garden in Amsterdam. In those three years we have learned a lot, and Lokale Bloemetjes has become a real attraction for the Gardens of West. Do you want to know more about our story? Then click here .
We look forward to seeing you in our picking garden from June to November, Wednesday to Sunday, 8:00 to 20:00! Because we are 100% dependent on nature, we unfortunately have to give the flowers their hibernation in the colder months.
