Floral expo in Holland 2012
KEUKENHOF/LISSE– “Poland – Heart of Europe” is the theme for Keukenhof 2012. The highlight for this theme year is the Romance of Chopin. The flower bulb mosaic shows a portrait of Chopin who was born in Poland. For several years now, Keukenhof has chosen to feature a different theme country each season. The theme country is the focus of attention in the park, which ensures a great deal of publicity in the country itself. In 2012, we are going to Eastern Europe. From 22 March to 20 May, the park’s focus will be on Poland as “Poland – Heart of Europe”. Keukenhof will be paying a colourful tribute to Poland, which is not only an important export market for flowering bulbs but also a growing source of tourists. In 2011, around 9.000 Polish visitors passed through the gates of Keukenhof. Read more

Floral carpet in BrusselsOfficially, the first Floral Carpet as its present-day form was created in 1971 on the Grand-Place by the landscape architect E. Stautemans, but, in fact, it was the culmination of a whole series created in various towns in Flanders. E. Stautemans, who was born in Zottegem, and graduated from the Ghent Horticultural College, had been experimenting since the early 50's making simple small carpets, more like rugs, mainly consisting of begonias (in Knokke, Oudenaarde, Sint-Niklaas, Lille…). He very quickly realised that floral carpets would be an excellent vehicle for the promotion of his beloved begonias which he had always worked with, both technically, economically and aesthetically. Next edition: Opening night the 14th August at 10pm. Exhibition 15, 16, 17, 18 and 19 August 2012. Exceptionnaly 5 days. for further informations http://www.flowercarpet.be
