Dig It Berrying Plants (30 September 2019)

Dig It! // Gardening & Green Spaces// WRS// General // By Mark // Sept. 30, 2019

At the start of autumn there are dozens of excellent garden and plant events happening all over Europe, and one of my favourites is Orticolario. It's only 3 hours by train from Zurich to Como, and 1 hour from Bellinzona - so what are you waiting for? This year's Plant of the Year is not one but dozens of different plants, all in the berrying plants group. If you can't get to Orticolario, or can't wait for suggestions from the specialists, you can try one of the dwarf blueberries like "Blueroma" "Bluecrop" or "Blue Dessert", all available from Lubera, or maybe a Siberian blueberry like the compact "Blue Sea", "Blue Moon" or "Blue Velvet." Orticolario runs from the 4 to the 6 of October, and there are family events, guided tours, lectures, art, show gardens, plants and lots of beautiful Italian products to enjoy www.orticolario.it
