Mediterranean garden fair returns for sixth year

Estoi || The sixth Mediterranean Garden Fair is taking place in the historic gardens of the Palace of Estoi on November 1 from 11am to 4pm.
Organised by the Mediterranean Garden Association, the event will include the participation of new nurseries and specialists in Agaves, Aloes and Yucca, ground-cover succulents and specially selected and commissioned plants for Algarve gardens, including the ravishing and rarely available Salvia discolor, the Black Salvia.
A plant crèche will be located next to the nurseries so that visitors can make their purchases and collect everything with their car at the end of their visit.
The plant nurseries and main exhibitors will all be together on the old parking area in the lower historic gardens of the Pousada with direct road access, disabled parking and plant crèche collection by car. This will be one of the very few opportunities to visit these recently renovated gardens.
The cleaned garden areas include fully restored tile panels, stairways and statues including the famous Three Graces.
The conference building will be open for refreshments, indoor exhibitors and talks/workshops on basic techniques to use in your own garden. There will be talks on gardening topics, including propagation techniques, culinary herbs, edible flowers and a special presentation on capers, with plants for sale.
Entry is €1 (accompanied children free). The ample car parking is on the market place site in Estoi with a free shuttle bus service between the car park and the garden fair. Pedestrian access to the fair will be via the entrance to the lower car park near to the conference centre (old stable block).
