Grüezi! The 2019 Home Garden Conference will take us to Zuchwil, Switzerland on 4-5 September. In addition to visiting our member Wyss Samen und Pflanzen with its extensive garden centre, magnificent trial ground and display garden with approx. 2000 plant species on 25,000m², the programme also foresees a visit to heritage garden Pro Specie Rara in Basel. The speakers' programme includes a company presentation from Wyss, an in-depth look at the green market in Switzerland, a presentation from retailer COOP focusing on the willingness of the customer to buy Bio products, and an insider's insight into cannabis production and the role of horticulture.

Within the framework of our '2019, Year of the Tropaeolum' campaign, we are organising an optional visit on 3 September to the stunning island of Mainau (approx. 2 hrs from Wyss), whose gardeners have agreed to plant out our full Nasturtium trial consisting of 85 varieties.

The team at Wyss supported by Robert Wacker of our member Media Concept Schweiz, is putting together this impressive programme. Make sure not to miss out on this unique event and block the date in your calendar now!

The invitation with full programme and travel recommendations will follow in April.
