Pre-orders accepted till
May 26th

From Monday May 28th until Sunday June 3rd I cordially invite you to Akerne Orchids' annual open nursery days from 10 am till 5 pm.

Every purchase of plants, fertiliser and potting materials made in the greenhouse during that week is eligible for a 15% discount (as a result these purchases will not be added to your fidelity card).

Private collection tour
The nursery is home to a unique collection of botanical orchids built up by my parents over the last 47 years containing a great number of seldom seen species.
This private collection has rarely been shown to the public, but on the occasion of the open nursery days part of the collection will be open for guided visits.

During that week there will be 2 guided visits each day (maximum 10 people per visit): the first one at 11 am and the second one at 2 pm in the shaded part of the intermediate/warm private collection.
Please register in advance using to secure your timeslot.

Interested in books?
Bert van Zuylen will again be present during the open nursery days with his extensive offering of orchid books and prints, new, secondhand and antiquarian.
Please note that Bert will only be present on Saturday June 2nd!

Hope to see you during the open nursery days!

kind regards,
Kenneth Bruyninckx.

Please note that the nursery will be closed from Monday May 21st until Sunday May 27th in order to prepare for our open nursery event!
