I wish I could say that I have green fingers, but I can’t. There is some progress though, for the last couple of years I have managed to keep my plants alive, and my collection is growing. This brought me to Wildernis Amsterdam, a new shop in the West side of town and it’s all about plants.
For a real gardener this is probably not the place to be, it is more geared towards a city gardener. Inside are plants, cacti and lots more to fill up your house, balcony or roof terrace. They have a mission to make the city greener; I think they will definitely succeed.
When you step inside the shop you are instantly overwhelmed. Plants everywhere! Big plants, small plants, hanging plants, cacti. You will also find everything you need to dress your garden or balcony, like rugs, furniture, seeds and different kinds of pots. It is like being in the middle of a jungle in the city. The surroundings are perfect for sitting down and enjoying a cup of coffee, which is also possible here!
