Everything you’ve ever wanted to know about cucurbitaceae, whether small, big, round or warty!

At our squash counter, contest entrants will compete to come up with the most ingenious design.

The host of our pumpkin-decorating contest, the good witch and urban farmer extraordinaire Esmerelda, will invite you to tour the 800-odd squashes and pumpkins decorated by students and visitors. In addition to showing off the fruits of her labours, an endless series of ugly fruit, Esmerelda is cooking up some really strange potions for you.

This year, our star character, Pépo citrouille, will step on stage one last time to play the detective in his show, Pépo enquête. Don’t forget to say your goodbyes!

Finally, don’t leave the Garden without stopping by the Little Monsters Courtyard, where new play structures await!
