Plants from Lorberg give the character to gardens, parks and towns throughout Europe. The trees and hedges that we grow in our tree nursery are exceptionally robust and climate-resistant
It’s all about the upbringing: We grow our plants in a continental climate, which means that they can cope easily with raw climate zones and hard winters later on.
Our Lorberg employees have chlorophyll in their blood: Growing and cultivating plants is their passion, and we make sure that the same passion comes to bear in helping customers. And when it comes to keeping up to date with the newest plant trends too.
For over 170 years and through six generations, we have developed and extended our knowledge of plants and trees. And it’s apparent in the quality of every single plant.
