The theme of this edition will be :
» Perennial geraniums « With Honorary Guest Dominique Evrard
A great plant lover, Dominique has had the National Collection of Perennial Geraniums for more than 30 years. In his Garden of Normandy he cultivates them, observes them and compares all the novelties. His critical eye will make you discover the best, whether you have a large park or a small city garden. Unparalleled floor coverings for the full sun or the dry shade, in the massifs or at the feet of shrubs they accompany the scenes of garden from May to October. It is these botanically oriented trips that lead him to the Juan Fernandez Islands, an archipelago off Chile, to Ecuador in the footsteps of Jussieu, or Kazakhstan, the country of the ancestor of all our apple trees. From these trips he sometimes brings back geraniums, conference topics and dreams to be shared. Dominique Evrard is also involved in the CCVS, the Conservatory of Specialized Plant Collections, which labellises more than 350 plant collections in France, and its magazine Men and Plants, thus contributing to the knowledge and preservation of biodiversity.

« VEGETALIS EX VOTO »
Nadine Dupeux and Danièle Orhan Orlick: they cut, they sew, they assemble: one shapes the wild plants, the other size in the web that makes and defeats the living. For the beauty of the gesture, for the beauty of the world. If their work is for men, the work is sometimes daring to challenge the sky. »
