Back again this year, the long-awaited edition of Giardini d'Autore of Rimini, now reached its 19th edition, is preparing to open the long series of events dedicated to the green, the colors of flowers and gardening in general. But not only. Because at the Federico Fellini Park in Rimini will be hosted every type of plant such as aquatic plants, tropical plants, ancient fruits, shade plants, unusual shrubs with early spring bloom, hellebores, succulents, climbing plants, historic and ornamental citrus, edible plants and many other plant curiosities.
All this means, with the additional presence of garden designers, landscapers, artisans and many dedicated events, the opportunity to enjoy and take full advantage of three days entirely dedicated to the green, in which to learn and make new experiences as well, of course, look for and find many objects and products derived from plants and flowers or even seeds, bulbs, plants and flowers perfect to decorate our spring garden.
