International nursery stock trade fair

Library 2022


 Jan Voogd; Working and dealing with, and a fascination for our green environment, has always been a huge part of my professional and personal life. Sowing, cutting, buying and/or exchanging plants - it has grown into an arboretum where I feel at home. Our green environment is becoming increasingly more important, which is why increasing knowledge and reading books about it is essential. Reading increases enthusiasm and meaning when it comes to working with green products. If you read more green books, you will improve your green thinking, and become more aware of a liveable environment.

 Diny Voogd; As Jan’s partner, his passion for trees rubbed off on me, and I also started to get interested in the subject. Jan has shown me a lot. Together, we collected and grown a nice assortment of different tree families. And we also offer members of the Dutch dendrological association interesting trips and days to share knowledge, and access to reliable reference books. We’d like to share a few of those with you.

 Hans van Selm; As voluntary librarian of the library of the NDV (Dutch dendrological association) in Rotterdam, I have been involved with trade fair GGP since 2016 - presenting approximately 700 books. You can call me a book freak. In 2016 we also started with digitising the book collection, and we created approximately 16 categories. All 700+ books have been photographed, and I created a slide show based on these photographs. In the past 3 years, you were able to find us right across the main stage, in the central hall, where we presented a selection from our book collection. Unfortunately, we cannot offer you a physical book presentation this year - you’ll have to make do with a photo of me, and a column about books.


We can heartily recommend the following books from our trade fair library. Would you like to get more information or do you want to discuss these books with a librarian? Please let us know via
