Plantarium 2018 kicks of in the Netherlands later this week (22-24 August, Boskoop) with a new layout and an entrance designed as a green oasis.
Occupying 12,000 sq.m, the show is a favourite with international plant buyers and is one of the best places to see new plant introductions. Eighty-eight of the 95 novelties submitted for this year’s novelties showcase were accepted. Judging will be carried out by the Royal Boskoop Horticultural Society (KVBC). An preview can be found on the website.
The Press Award, adjudicated by a jury of international trade journalists, will name winners in three categories - garden, balcony& terrace plants and concepts.
Plantarium 2018 and GROEN-Direkt's autumn trade fair will take place simultaneously under the same roof. The site can be reached via the familiar car park at Greenpark Boskoop (Denemarkenlaan 9).
Opening times (local times): 8.00 am to 6.00 pm (4.00 pm on Friday). Entry is free with a promotional ticket or by digital pre-registration.
