You will discover a breathtaking exhibition of floral arrangements and decorative plants in the greenhouses. More than 10,000 flowers from various flower markets in Europe are brought in each week. The chapel and the tower are also decked out with wonderful flower arrangements. Tulips, orchids and other bulbs can be purchased at the entrance to the castle.

This is a great day out for the whole family.“FLORALIA BRUSSELS” is open from April 6th until May 6th 2012, every day from 10:00 until 18:00. Tickets cost €10 for adults, € 5 for children (6-14). More details at www.floralia-brussels.be.

    I went to Floralia for the first time in 2004 and I was absolutely blown away by the sheer number of flowers and the gorgeous natural setting. After seeing the Floralia display at the chateau de Grand-Bigard, my Mum (visiting from Canada) thought Keukenhof Gardens was boring! I went back a few more times but have skipped Floralia for several years as I found they were planting fewer and fewer bulbs.

    They’re back on track, though, and I really enjoyed it this year — especially since I managed to be there in the only sunny period of the day. It’s still on this week, so go and feast your eyes on the fabulous array of colours and flower varieties.

    I’ve posted a selecton of photos of this year’s gardens on my Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/wendy.deyell
