and brought flowers and plants to the ultimate emotion.

an Atomium of azaleas and alligators in the ponds, it were but a few of the highlights.
The first flower show in 1809 was organized in an inn along the Coupure.
At just 48 sqm 137 plants were then exhibited.
The exhibition then moved to a new building, namely the Floraliënpaleis in the Citadel Park.
From 1990 the show is in the Flanders Expo,
where she is now more than a acre inner space with a walking parcour of 2.3 km along 500,000 plants.
International florists showed different garden ideas in the main hall,
as a mangrove, a rocky desert landscape or a Swedish garden.
Flemish artists chose flower white flowers, Wallonia for a colorful mix.
The province of Hainaut presented figures from prehistory.
Meters high and oriental inspired presentations managed to surprise you.
The flagship of the Flemish ornamental, the azalea is as always very present everywhere.
This flowering houseplant is a typical local product of Gent.
In the hall was a great collection of azaleas, flowering greenhouse plants, non-flowering greenhouse plants and cut flowers.

to built a beautiful combined with a B & B.
To provide the private garden of the latest new plants
followed many trips to the United Kingdom,
arose friendships and a lot of garden relationships.
The first year was a double 100m long border of three to four meters deep andscaped.
The following year, followed by a third hundred meters long border
located along the railway and some hedges as windbreaks.
In the third year the rose garden took shape and were several varieties of Azaleas and Rhododendrons planted.
In the fourth year,numerous fruit trees were planted
with disease resistant varieties and a collection of hydrangeas.
And in the fifth year Maurice saw that it was good

Due to problems with his health, he sadly had to say goodbye
