Dig It! French plant fair (8 May 2017)
Hester recently visited the gorgeous French plant fair, Saint Jean de Beauregard, awash with glorious plants, specialist sellers, a chteau and formal gardens free to visit. While she was there, she caught up with fig specialist, Thierry Demarquest of Figues du Monde, who has a huge collection of figs and definitely has something for every garden. He has some great suggestions for growing figs in cooler climates. For those in Suisse Romande, your chance for a great plant fair is this week at the Chateau de Coppet, Friday 12- Sunday 14th, bring your wellies and your wallet! More information at Jardins en Fete.
