Our store on the Bilderdijkstraat is open seven days a week. Browse the plants, pots, books, accessories and other fun green gifts. Ask for personal plant advice. Or get comfortable in our green oasis with a cup of coffee or tea.

All of the products featured here have been created with love and care. We work closely with illustrators, designers and independent Dutch makers to create products that have a unique Wildernis touch; created close to home and as sustainable as possible.

We’re on a mission to make the city greener. That’s why we are working with green professionals and organisations to initiate projects and organise workshops and lectures on plants, nature and (urban) gardening.

About Us

We are Mila and Emma. We used to spend our time working in journalism and interior design until we realised that we wanted more greenery in our lives. We decided we needed to create a green oasis in the heart of Amsterdam as a base from which we could green the city, one leaf, one vine, one plant at a time.

In May 2015 we opened Wildernis on the Bilderdijkstraat. Here you’ll find all of our favourite things from houseplants and gardening tools to books, accessories and other green accessories. Recently we also opened a webshop, and we’re working on our own productline.

We hope to show you the amazing potential of greenery. We hope that you are able to leave the chaos of the city behind and embrace the peace and quiet the minute you step inside our shop. We hope that once you’ve experienced the magic of our ‘wilderness’, you will never want to leave. But that when you do, that you feel inspired to green the city.

Because we believe that greenery is for everyone. You don’t have to be an expert, you can develop green fingers with time and experience. Start small and simple: follow a workshop, buy a book, and ask us your questions. We’re here for you!
