In lieu of entrance tickets each person was given a pack of mixed seeds.
We started our tour by visiting the chateau and its gardens before walking down through the village. The displays were many and varied ranging from stands selling daffodil/narcissus bulbls, a huge range of allium bulbs and another selling iris rhizomes.
Inside the chateau was a display of glass objects in really vibrant colours.
In the stairwell hung this picture of a raven.
One of the stands sold floral sushi
Down below was another stand selling brightly coloured bird houses.
There were floral displays and mixed-media pictures, assorted organically produced food and apple products, baskets and, obviously, lots of plants.
