Autunno alla Landriana garden fair opens 12-14 October 2018.
The 17th edition of Autunno alla Landriana, the autumn garden fair and horticultural sale at the Landriana gardens south of Rome, takes place from 12-14 October, between 10.00 and 18.00 each day.
The three-day fair will include unusual and rare plants, trees, flowers, bulbs, gardening tools, pots, books and garden accessories, with Italian and international experts on hand to provide gardening tips.
The ten-hectare gardens were created in the 1950s by owner Marchesa Lavinia Taverna Gallarati Scotti with the help of celebrated British landscape architect Russell Page. Now considered the most important postwar garden in Italy, La Landriana contains 32 secret spaces and walks including one planted entirely with Mutabilis roses.
Driving from Rome, take Via Pontina or the coastal road to Ardea, or by train on the Rome-Nettuno line to Campo di Carne. For more details tel. 0691014140 or see website.
