22-25 April 2011. The annual garden fair and horticultural sale takes place at the Landriana gardens south of Rome over the Easter weekend. Firmly established on the gardening calendar for professionals and amateur green-fingers alike, this year organisers of Primavera della Landriana are promising not only an explosion of colour but the best in Italian floriculture, with more than 100 exhibitors from across Italy displaying plants, bulbs, books, pots, garden furniture and equipment. The ten-hectare gardens were created in the 1950s by owner Marchesa Lavinia Taverna Gallarati Scotti with the help of renowned English landscape designer Russell Page. Now considered the most important post-war garden in Italy, Landriana contains 32 secret rooms and walks including one planted entirely with Mutabilis roses. Open to the public from 10.00-19.00 during the fair. Driving from Rome, take Via Pontina or the coastal road to Ardea, or by train on the Rome-Nettuno line to Campo di Carne.
