2017

8 - 15 November, GREECE
Autumn bulbs in the southern Peloponnese

This trip, led by John Fielding, will go to areas rich in narcissus, anemones, snowdrops, cyclamen, colchicum, sternbergia and other special plants. This is primarily a wild plant trip but includes visits to the garden of Patrick Leigh-Fermor, the beautiful town of Nafplio, the Byzantine site of Mystras, and Ancient Corinth.

2018

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.

15 - 22 April SPAIN
Plants and Gardens of Alicante

The 2018 Mediterranean Gardening International event will be organised by MPG and take place in the province of Alicante. We will see wild flowers, including orchids, near Javea and walk on the Montgó massif. There will be visits to a Moorish-style garden, the palm groves and Huerto del Cura garden of Elche, the Albarda gardens near Denia and a variety of private gardens. This will be a two-centre trip, staying the first in Elche and then moving on to Denia. For full details about the trip click here.
