Plant advice

Cor van Gelderen

Cor van Gelderen is one of the owners of PlantenTuin Esveld, a family business since 1865, and is an active tree nursery man. As an author and photographer, he travels at home and abroad, always on the lookout for beautiful plant pictures and good planting ideas. As a tree nurse with decades of experience and a breeder of thousands of different plants, he knows their special qualities and properties from practice. He draws inspiration here primarily from the possibilities that the garden in question offers, but also from successful combinations of plants, as he has seen during his numerous trips.

PlantenTuin Esveld has therefor specialized in planting advice for gardens that need a high level of expertise and special plantings. Not only for rare plants but also from an aesthetic viewpoint. A few projects realized are the Japanese Garden in the famous Keukenhof, a roof garden for a new covered parking building for a large hospital in Amsterdam and a restoration of a Rhododendron garden in ’s Graveland. But we do also small gardens, we have done many in the last years. Please contact us for more details.
