We work in nature, for nature and with nature. Very nice in the warm months, but unfortunately it also means that we have to give our beautiful city garden a hibernation in the colder months. The picking garden is therefore closed at the moment. We will be back in June next year!
In the first sustainable picking garden in Amsterdam you can 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.
As soon as you are ready, you can choose to take the flowers separately or to bind them with our sustainable packaging materials. All supplies are ready for you, so you don't have to bring anything else!
Prices & payment
You pay € 15 for a picking vase. No more than a beautiful bunch from a regular florist, but you certainly have more special flowers and a nicer experience. You also support our small business and help us maintain the picking garden.
Please note:payment is only possible by bank transfer or exact cash.

It is no problem to come with a group. If you plan to pick with more than 10 people, it would be useful if you send a message in advance. This way we can ensure that there are enough vases, scissors, etc. available.
We offer a wide range of annuals and perennials to pick from, including many wild flowers, dahlias, zinnias and more. Looking for something specific? Please do not hesitate to contact us.

The easiest way is by bike, but you can also go by car. If you prefer to come by public transport, you will have to walk 15-20 minutes to reach us.
Or a whole bucket ...
Do you prefer a whole bucket full of Lokale Bloemetjes , for example to decorate an event, or just a house full of color? Then go for a picking bucket (€ 50). At least 4 beautiful bouquets can be made here.
If you don't feel like or have the time to arrange the flowers yourself, you can simply order one of our do it yourself buckets. We will get to work for you, and you can come and collect the bucket full of beautifully composed (grower's choice) and suitable flowers ready-made.
In the middle of the picking garden - surrounded by the colors and scents of the garden - is a long table on a small lawn. This idyllic spot can be rented by half or full day for small-scale events and is perfect for your baby shower, bachelor party or lunch with loved ones.
