VerdeMura also in 2020 re-proposes its winning formula, which last year, in two and a half days of the event, saw the influx of many thousands of gardening enthusiasts from all over Italy. However, something is renewed, above all for the determination to put plants at the center, their scientific name, their best use in the garden, the range of species and varieties of some purely spring plant genres. For example, a collection of 15 species and varieties of the genus Amelanchier will be seen and purchased: shrubs or small trees with a rich white spring bloom, followed by tiny edible fruits.
“We asked exhibitors - said Giuseppe Benedetti, coordinator of VerdeMura - to give maximum prominence to the novelties and to those plants of their production that are not yet known or ask to be enhanced more. We think of collectors, who come to Lucca specifically for this appointment, but also of those who have only a small balcony or courtyard and want to find stimuli and suggestions for practicing quality gardening with original or unconventional plants ".
A novelty of this year is also the location of the market exhibition, between Baluardo San Donato and Baluardo San Paolino to optimize the visit route and guarantee usability in any weather.
In addition, the organizing team is developing some surprises that will delight many amateur gardeners, from those who never have enough of growing roses to those who would like to meet live the protagonists of botany and gardening, not only national ones.
