Great news this year at Il Germoglio Garden Center in Salzano (VE) which participates in the Autumn Garden Festival, a national "open door" organized by AICG (Italian Association of Gardening Centers): to celebrate autumn as a second spring it is a ship loaded with hay bales arrived.
In fact, a 9x9 meter sensory labyrinth was created with hay inside the nursery-garden, an open-air path that crosses a maze of hay balls and pumpkins, where you can find corners of knowledge, small showcases of autumn Italian plants. .
An area in which to literally "get lost" in complete safety and social distancing, immersing yourself in the colors and scents of autumn plants, relaxing, observing and learning about a selection of made in Italy excellence. Autumn as a moment of restart, of inner rebirth and renewal: these are the messages that Il Germoglio and all the Italian Garden Centers participating in the Autumn Garden Festival will be spokespersons for through an event that emphasizes the power of plants to purify the air and the environment and to help improve people's well-being.
We have had confirmation in recent months, during the lockdown, of how much plants and greenery have been a fundamental help to regain well-being and give happiness to people.
So it is essential to surround yourself with green: for the eyes, for the heart, for the brain, for all five senses. What's more satisfying than dipping your hands in the earth? Touch it, smell it, plant seeds, bulbs, flowers, vegetables for the winter; planting new trees that will flower and fruit in spring; learn how to prune the bushes and roses correctly, so as to have them bloomed in December ...
