Support the creation of a spectacular floral parterre !
Every year, to the great delight of visitors as they stroll through the park, the gardeners at the Domaine national de Saint-Cloud create the floral carpet bed, set below the Trocadero garden and visible from the château terraces.
Carpet bedding, a floral art that has been very fashionable since the 19th century.
By putting together particular colours of flowers and forms of foliage to create motifs according to a predetermined design, the gardeners bring to life a floral carpet 62 metres long and 2 metres wide every year.
Over 1,000 hours of work and 20,000 plants are needed.
Help us to finance the carpet bed to be planted in 2021, and which will adorn the Domaine until the first frosts of the autumn.
A total budget of €26,300, which includes the production of a frame by the workshops, the purchase of plants, substrate, compost and labour.
