As I mentioned in a previous post, I went to the Center near the German city of Münster this last weekend. I got a few pictures of different things there to give a general idea of how big the place is, and what kinds of trees they have there.

They have a wide array of soils, soil mixtures, stands, pots etc. A room of about 40-50 sqaure meters of pots, ranging from pots for accent plants to special langcape pots the size of a coffee table. The also have a few concrete creations and differing stones for langscape or multple-tree constructions.
They also have a wide variety of plants with several gree houses, and gardens. I didn't have time to get into one of their main displays, where the most expensive trees are on display. (It was midday, and we had been traveling for a couple of days, and with the warmer, sunnier weather, I wanted to get home.)

I will add a few pictures in the replies.

Here's one of the room with the pots at table with junipers, one next to one of the greenhouses, some ficus trees inside the greenhouse, and a row of azaleas on the side of one of the greenhouses.

I'm not sure how big their staff is, but there were a few doing repots, and moving plants etc... as well as other things. They also offer courses, and free coffee and cake to visitors. They also had a wide variety of books.

Sorry about the sort of scattered nature of my review. I do have more pics, if anyone is interested.

Would love to visit in person one day!

The do have trees there with a five digit price tag.. :-D They do also have a large number of mallsai and starter trees. unfortunately, we had a limited amount of time. Thankfully, we don't have any more space for new trees, it would have been an expensive day. :-D
