Business not quite as usual for GROEN-Direkt

The end of August is when GROEN-Direkt traditionally kicks off the garden plant autumn season with its Autumn Fair.


This year, to ensure compliance with the COVID-19 guidelines, GROEN-Direkt are organising an Autumn Showroom.


From Monday 24 to Wednesday 26 August this single-sample presentation will be accessible by appointment to enable garden plant buyers and traders to physically inspect our range of plants. Appointments can be made at from 10 July onwards. So business, but not quite as usual in August!

Autumn Showroom

At our Autumn Showroom you will be able to see, feel and smell a wide range of garden plants yourself. The extra room that is now available for 30% more sample batches offers the individual growers plenty of opportunity to present their ranges. An impressive total of 5,500 samples will be on show – not in layers as usual, but one plant of each batch. The Autumn Showroom will also include novelties and sales concepts, ‘Extra Products’ and an attractive Christmas tree presentation. Orders can be easily placed via the standard ordering app on your tablet or mobile phone.

By appointment
GROEN-Direkt’s Autumn Showroom at Noorwegenlaan 37, 2391 PW Hazerswoude, the Netherlands (ITC site), will be accessible by appointment only, so arrange your visit on time via (from 10 July onwards). Visits will be scheduled in time slots to regulate the number of visitors on each day. For the latest information on our Autumn Showroom see our website, and follow all developments via our LinkedIn company page and our Twitter account.


You can also buy garden plants any time via our webshop, where you can view and order from a clear survey of our entire range. The range and the photos accompanying the products are updated every week. A login code can be easily obtained via our website.
