First spring bulbs planted at Floriade-park

Leaves falling from the trees, the sun setting earlier and the clock is turned back one hour: autumn has arrived. The time for Floriade Expo 2022 to plant the first spring bulbs. Because planting in the fall means colour in the spring time!

In section 31 of the arboretum, which is part of the letter ‘A’ the planting of Alliums has started. Allium is the botanical name of the spring bulb better known as the ornamental onion. They are the first in a series of 14.000 bulbs to be planted which will continue to flower after Floriade Expo 2022. Towards the International Horticultural Exposition all plants will be planted from A to Z according to their botanical name in the 191 sections of the arboretum .
