Giardini Botanici Villa Taranto

This follows on from my early blog posts from my April visit to Northern Italy. Matthias Brück had invited me to Switzerland to take part in the Perennials for Resilience seminar in Stans and he asked me along on a trip through the Alps to the Piedmont area of NW Italy. Our host, Pius Leutenegger took us on a botanical trip to Lake Maggiore. Giardini Botanici Villa Taranto (the Villa Taranto Botanical Gardens) is the second garden we visited on 3rd April, located on the western shore of the lake. The gardens were established in 1931-1940 by Scotsman Neil Boyd McEacharn and opened to the public in 1952.
