Floriade 2022


April to October 2022


Holland's once-in-a-decade World's Fair of horticulture - World Expo Floriade - Amsterdam - Almere 2022


The world's largest horticultural expo with exhibitions from more than 30 countries


Almere Floriade will be a grid of gardens on a 45ha square shaped peninsula.

Each block will be devoted to different plants, a plant library organized alphabetically.

The blocks are each devoted to a wide variety of different programs, from pavilions to homes, offices and even a university which will be

organized as a stacked botanical garden, a vertical eco-system in which each class room will have a different climate to grow certain plants.

Visitors will be able to stay in a jasmine hotel, swim in a lily pond and dine in a rose garden. The city will offer homes in orchards, offices with planted interiors and bamboo parks.

The Expo and new city centre will be a place that produces food and energy, a green, urban district demonstrating how plants, indeed nature itself ,enriches every aspect of our daily lives.

Leonardslee Lakes and Gardens


Lower Beeding, Horsham, West Sussex, RH13 6PP


Reopened in April 2019


Leonardslee is a Grade 1 listed 19th-century Italianate style country house and landscaped woodland garden which closed to the public in 2010.

The garden is particularly noted for its spring displays of rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias, magnolias and bluebells, with the flowering season reaching its peak in May.


The house and gardens were acquired by new owners in July 2017, who are dedicated to restoring, maintaining and further improving the gardens and buildings.

so that the public can once again experience their beauty and special qualities. The primary phase of their considerable renovation was completed in time for the opening date.
