Do you want to travel in September 2019? 

Dates and tour costs will be confirmed Autumn 2018, please let us know you wish to travel.

Meaning ‘Passion for Flowers’, Fleuramour is one of Europe’s most prestigious floral events and has been a highlight of the ECT tour calendar for many years. Set in the historic grounds of the National Commandery at Alden Biesen in Bilzen, Belgium and hosted by Rekad, publishers of Fleur Créatif magazine, the show takes place every September, attracting exhibitors and visitors from all over the world.

2018's theme is Urban Roots and one of the highlights will be seeing how Belgian florist Tom de Houwer's interprets it in his transformation of the Courtyard of Honour. Rumour has it that he is moving heaven and earth to turn the courtyard into a place of sensory perception. Expect miraculous shapes, playful colours, delicious floral scents and music inspired by nature... 

Around 100 other internationally renowned designers will be there too, turning the rooms and grounds of this 16th century castle into a dreamy floral sanctuary. Look out for French stars Frédéric Dupré and Martine Soulier, Spain's sensational Carles Fontanillas, founder of Floos a Crafter's Secret, and leading Belgian creative Moniek Vanden Berghe.

Fleuramour is more than a beautiful and inspiring flower show, it is also a place to learn. This year's programme  is bursting with demonstrations and workshops where visitors can pick up tips from some of the world’s best floral designers.
