Get your passports ready!

POSTED BY KIM — I just learned the 2012 Hydrangea International Symposium is set for July 5 & 6 in Angers, France. Oo-la-la!

I’ve never been to France — and probably won’t make it this year.  But consider this: The symposium will be held at the Terra Botanica Park, which opened in 2010 and is the biggest park in the world dedicated to plants, attracting 250,000 people every year.

The event’s theme is to develop and improve the hydrangea market, taking into account environmental and commercial constraints, and investigate what the hydrangea plants of the future are.

Four of the sessions include:
1. Origin of the hydrangea and genetic resources, management
2. Hydrangea: current physiological, biological and genetic knowledge
3. Development strategy and cultivation techniques
4. Hydrangea market in 2025

Donations to the “Get Kim to France Fund” can be directly to Kim Reiss.  🙂  Maybe one day…
