On the grounds of the beautiful Beervelde estate in Belgium twice a year a large garden event is being held. This estate is located at Lochristi and is a one-hour drive by car from where I live. Last Friday I went there to buy plants.
To go to this garden fair never bores me. Whilst driving I realize this is perhaps the fifteenth time I go there. There is always this feel of excitement; will l find something special?
Again I am not disappointed. I find red flowering broad beans in the stand with special vegetable seeds. I saw these beans last summer in England. I buy two packages. After all, you never know whether they will germinate.
But the most important purchase this time is the Phlox. I have bought 16 of them. All purple. Phlox ' Gräfin von Schwerin' at the stand of Marcel de Wagt. It should be a very nice variety. I preordered some of these Phloxes. I have not seen this “Gräfin ” flowering before, but I trust his expertise.
A purple Gräfin (countess) bought at the estate of Beervelde. It can’t get any better.
Broke but completely satisfied I drive back home again. The backseat covered with purple Phloxes.
Impression of Beervelde.
Echinacea and Dahlia's are hot!
Bulbs for sale.
At the stand with special vegetable seeds I saw this beautiful necklace.
