We were extremely happy to be invited to exhibit at our first ever French Garden show, Journées des Plantes - in Domaine de Chantilly. A longstanding garden event that has been running now for over 30 years, it brings together 200 of the best horticultural and garden lifestyle exhibitors.
We don't think we have ever exhibited in a place so beautiful. Blessed with the most glorious mid October sunshine, it felt more like a weekend in August. The backdrop to the show is the stunning Château de Chantilly. The original building was destroyed in the French Revolution and rebuilt during 1875. A majestic building surrounded by the lake and ornamental gardens, it really was a sight to behold.
The reception we received from our French customers was great, and we were pleased to meet so many of you over the few days. If you haven't been to Chantilly we certainly recommend you put it on your 'must visit' list.
We look forward to visiting again next year.
