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.

May (date to be confirmed) ITALY
Villa gardens of the Veneto

A four-day tour of Veneto including the Brenta riviera, Padua, with the oldest botanical garden in Italy, and Verona where other important villas await. To request further information as it becomes available contact Angela Durnford.

Two trips organised by MGF member Maria Sansoni, owner of Flora Mediterranea, a specialist plant nursery based in Munich, Germany. The main language on the tours will be German, but Maria also speaks excellent English. Prices quoted in the programme details include air travel from Munich, but for those wishing to make their own travel arrangements Maria can quote a special price.

18 – 24 September, Cornwall, UK
Romantik, Gärten und Natur / The romantic gardens of Cornwall

This trip will include visits to many of Cornwall’s most famous gardens, including Trebah, Glendurgan, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project. There will also be the opportunity to see a number of private gardens, and, as many of the gardens are on the coast, perhaps to swim in the sea. The main hotel will be Penmorvah Manor, a country house hotel set in peaceful countryside near Falmouth. For full programme details click here.

8 – 14 October, MALLORCA
Trauminsel Mallorca – Besondere Gärten und Natur / Gardens of the island of Mallorca

On this tour, Maria has included private and public gardens in all parts of the very diverse island of Mallorca from the mountainous west coast to the quiet and windswept south-east. Well-known gardens to be visited are the Moorish Alfabia and the Botanical Garden of Sóller, but there are also lesser-known treasures in the Serra de Tramuntana, such as the botanical garden of the monastery Santuari de Lluc. Accommodation is in the Hotel Lido Park in Peguera. For full programme details click here..
