Steingaden – The Steingaden Blossom Days: They are once again proving to be a crowd puller, for the ninth time since the event was first launched in 2008. This year, too, the parking lots on the meadow were full, and for two days thousands flocked to the grounds around the foal farm and the monastery garden of St. Johannes to be inspired by the variety of offers related to planting and gardening. More than 140 exhibitors presented their products.

The event was framed by numerous events: On Saturday, lectures were on the agenda dedicated to the topic of potato cultivation and tomato diversity, for the little ones there was a soap bubble workshop and an open carving workshop. Sunday was marked by a musical morning pint with the youth band Lechbruck-Steingaden and other ensembles as well as plenty of food. In the end, organizer Roberta Leimbach and her 15-member team were able to draw an all-round positive conclusion: "We again had around 10,000 visitors, many of whom traveled from far away, from the Allgäu, the Lake Constance area and Switzerland - simply a great response."

The basic idea is that the focus should not only be on traditional rural garden culture, but also on rarer plants and unusual cultivation methods. The farm "allgana" based in the Allgäu, for example, specializes in the production of natural fertilizer. Nothing works without nitrogen – but not in combination with chemical-industrial agents, but in the air as it occurs in nature. One plant that is able to extract the nutrient-giving element from it is white clover - and this is exactly what is used in the granules developed by owner Manfred Igel. "Through its root system, the plant manages to bind the nitrogen in a natural way and make it available to the soil as a growth donor," he informed interested parties.

The fact that geraniums should not actually be called that, but are actually pelargoniums, belong to the stork's beak family and comprise up to 280 species - florist Hanna Angermeier provided information. It also has all kinds of exotic things to offer, including the fire dragon's tooth, the honey bush or the lion's ear, which is a great eye-catcher on the balcony or terrace with its strong orange flowers.

Blossom Days in Steingaden: "Love can be felt everywhere"

According to their own statements, many visitors do not want to miss the blossom days. "Just great, a wonderfully designed area, love was palpable everywhere," said Renate and Jörg Ebert, who found their way here from Lake Ammersee. Catharina Jestaedt from Peiting is no less pleased: "I think the organization is great, everything is so lovingly thought out and the venue is simply fabulous."

How do the organizers manage to fill the Blossom Days with such life? One of the secrets lies not least in the team, as one of the members sees it: "We all work on a voluntary basis and simply put a lot of heart and soul into it - everyone feels that, whether exhibitors or guests." The next "Steingaden Blossom Days" will take place in 2025 - for the tenth time.
