25 February – 4 March, TENERIFE
A trip for plant lovers
Despite its small size, Tenerife has a surprising number of plants, around 1400 species. Of these, 200 are endemic to the Canaries and 140 to Tenerife itself. Although the island is in general more humid and mild than most of the Mediterranean, many plants grown in Mediterranean gardens come from the Canaries. This trip is being organised by Mediterranean Plants and Gardens.
