Arboretum Wespelaar is OPEN again on Wednesdays and Sundays from 10am to 5pm, until Wednesday, November 13th. Groups are also welcome on other days on request (with guide). For more practical informations, please go to "Contact and visits".

In the courtyard, the plant borders are well filled and the Alliums provide a playful effect. If the temperature is not too high, we expose some of our bonsais. There are many hawthorns (Crataegus) in bloom and the Rhododendrons are still doing their best too. It seems that they have never been so filled with flowers. It does mean a lot of work dead-heading them when the flowering is over. By taking the flowers out after flowering, we prevent the plant from putting energy into the production of seeds, which is beneficial to the general condition of the plant: they are less likely to be depleted and then bloom beautifully the following year.

This leaflet will guide you around in the Arboretum (also available at the reception).
