Les Printanières de la Brande


The first weekend in May heralds the start of the garden fair season throughout France. We always make a visit to the fete at La Brande, Fouleix which is about thirty minutes drive from here at Le Banquet.


The Jardins de la Brande is a specialist shrub nursery which hosts this two day plant fair in beautiful surroundings known as the woodland gardens of 'Hortus and Sylve'. 

With a huge selection of plants from over forty specialist 'producteurs', together with artisans, artists and crafts people Les Printanières de la Brande  is one of the most interesting places to spend a weekend in the glorious May sunshine!

  1. It looks a great fun to visit there.
    I have never been to France, and I want to visit some day in future.

    1. Hi Poirot. Maybe one day you'll visit France. It's a beautiful country - I'm certain you'd love it.

  2. Now that sounds like my idea of a perfect weekend Rob. Did you make any purchases?

    1. Hi Anna. It was a good weekend. We've just got back from another this afternoon where I bought Allium senescens which is a summer flowering allium and Hebe hulkeana.
