October 19, 20 and 21, 2012, will take place the famous Courson Autumn Plant Days. This great meeting of botanical and horticultural diversity will celebrate this year his 30th birthday. For the occasion, the organizers of this event have chosen to honor this 57th edition, the Hydrangeas and their friends. These attractive plants are sure to charm visitors with their silhouettes, their distinctive foliage, the diversity of their long-term blooms or even their sought-after colors. How can you resist when you know that they can be installed in a large as well as a small garden or even on a terrace since most varieties are suitable for container culture?
But this event is above all the opportunity to meet renowned nurserymen from all over Europe which will offer a wide choice of trees, shrubs, perennials and other plants and also follow the latest news on plants and garden planning. One of the specificities of Courson indeed lies in the fact of presenting in the same place plants coming directly from the producers. You will find the plant you are looking for, but also the advice of the one who raised and cultivated it, and who knows all its characteristics and needs in terms of care, growth, maintenance ... Very useful for gardening practice! Obviously, many activities will punctuate these 3 days: conferences, signatures, awards ceremonies, baptisms, workshops ... Young and old will also be able to stroll in the labyrinth of flowery meadows designed especially for this edition. A nice idea for an outing for this weekend that will allow everyone to discover or rediscover this site, historic monument and remarkable garden.
