In the second half of May the medium level, second year gardening students went on a study visit to Tuscany; a beautiful region, especially in the spring time. This was one of the reasons we decided to travel to this area, as well as to enjoy the cultural and artistic joys of Florence. We also enjoyed the landscape and gardens of Bomazo and Prato, the business-world aspects of Pistoia and in questions of tradition and customs, the city of Perugia. On the trip we also learned a great deal about the beginnings of Italian gardening during the Renaissance period and its later development. We certainly feel proud to make up what constitutes the continuation of Mediterranean gardening.
