One of January?s main events in the Cote d?Azur is the
Mimosalia Garden Fair, hosted in the aptly-named village Borme-les-Mimosas on
the 30th and 31st January 2016.
The Fair, just a short distance from our St Tropez villas, is one of the village?s biggest events, and will
see 70 exhibitors not only from the local region but from all over France
gather to showcase established favourites as well as new innovations in the
world of gardening. Now in its 20th year, the fair will feature two
distinct areas – Park Cigalou and Place St Francis. Park Cigalou will play host
to a huge variety of plants, ranging from beautiful mimosas to bonsai, with
over 30 nurseries presenting hundreds of plant species and varieties, while
Place St Francis will host everything related to garden decoration and
furniture, from fountains to tools and pottery.
The fair is one of the best places to discover new plants,
including rare plants and unusual varieties, with plenty more going on besides
just the stalls. There will be a number of talks, allowing you to take in some
expert guidance from some of France?s best botanists, as well as floral art
contests and guided tours of Parc Gonzalez, which is the first park in Europe
to be dedicated to Australian flora.
