ORTICOLARIO - Garden show

Tomorrow opens the ORTICOLARIO Garden Show on the beautiful Como Lake in Italy.

At its fourth edition, the fair takes place in the magnificent Villa Erba at Cernobbio, the ancient mansion of Lucchino Visconti.
To add a bit more glamour, if necessary, this year the show is dedicated to Orchids, both hybridised and botanical.

Among other novelties, two brand new plants will be presented to the public. The first one is the Vivienne Westwood Rose obtained by Rose Barn. The second one will be the "Villa Erba" Iris produced by the famous French Iris Cayeux. The picture is not yet available, but a stroll on their web catalogue will make anyone weak...

For those near Milan or on a trip in Italy, the fair will last from the 5th to the 7th of October.

  1. I've read your blog for the first time and I like it very much. I'm a great rose lover, especially the "old roses", but the Vivienne Westwood rose is also a beauty. I shall come along again.

  2. Hi Janneke,
    Thank you very much for your comment! So glad you like it.
    Have a nice day

  3. Ei, ce mi-as fi dorit sa merg la expozitia asta ... poate intr-o toamna, o sa reusesc ...
