The highlight of the swiss horticultural calendar has to be the Giardina event held annually in Zurich. Open to the public since Wednesday, it runs until Sunday 19 March at the Messe Zurich. Access is easy from all over Switzerland thanks to the SBB Railway Giardina Combi, see the website for full details.
Giardina is a massive event held over five floors encompassing 30,000m2. A new app has been developed to make navigation a little easier. Designers and vendors come together to present their new lines of products and ideas, new trends in colours and plants and often with new solutions for tricky problem areas. There are 20 show gardens from 20 – 200m2 highlighting different possibilities for the varying size of garden for today’s amateur gardener. A little something for everyone and a must if you can make it.
