Welcome to A Garden in Venice, La Venessiana’s garden blog extension! Our virtual garden season opens on 21 March 2019! We will add new garden posts in spring, on secret palace gardens, Lagoon gardens, botanical gardens, horti conclusi, practical gardening tips, and much more. These #instameets are organized by our partner, The Liquid Press. More information will be online in March 2019.
The first inspiration to write about Venetian gardens is Grandmother Lina’s green paradise, located on the ancient premises of the San Zaccaria garden. She has been living in and curating this sprawling garden, stretching across courtayrds, terraces, and altane (roof terraces) since 1968. I learnt everything I’m writing about gardening in Venice in this, special, garden of my childhood.
