Ever heard of picking gardens? In these gardens you can pick your own fruit. Of course you can also buy it picked, but picking it yourself is of course a tad nicer! There are several picking gardens: Summer raspberries, autumn raspberries, black currants, red currants, white berries, gooseberries and blueberries.
The blueberry was for many people an unknown fruit, but this has become increasingly popular in recent years. No wonder, many studies show that the blueberry is a very healthy fruit. What is at least as important, however, is that they are also incredibly tasty. Pay attention to the harvest time! The blueberries are ripe from July to mid-September.
No sense in fruit? Pick your own bouquet in the flower picking garden! Lovers get a pair of scissors and stroll through the garden in search of their beloved flowers. You can pick a bouquet for yourself but also for someone else. Plucking yourself is a party because you can see your bouquet growing.
