Jardins en Fête

The ever popular local garden event returns from 12-14 May with the very current theme of “Jardins urbains“.  With 120 exhibitors from across Europe expect to see a selection of specialist growers, from rose and peony specialists to a variety of perennials and tree nurseries, landscape architects, garden accessory and outdoor furniture vendors. Held in the gardens of the Château de Coppet this is a not to be missed garden event, it is our own mini Chelsea.

This is the perfect place to get plug plants and fragrant herbs for your vegetable garden, along with perennial plants and roses for the garden as well as trees and shrubs. Chat with an expert and take note of their advice. Enjoy a coffee or a bite to eat and take in the floral beauty of the transformed grounds. At the end of the day don’t forget to engage a young wheelbarrower to help you to your car with all of your heavy plants; local kids who will wheel your purchases to your car in the parking (a tip is always welcome). With rain forecast overnight on Thursday a morning in wellie boots may be a wise choice.

NB While dogs are not welcome in the grounds a supervised doggy crèche is available beneath the shade of the trees.
