Event Details

Mediterranean Gardeners Portugal is holding its Spring Garden Fair this March.

The Spring event for 2017 will be in the rural setting of Quinta da Figueirinha near to Silves town. There will be small and specialist nurseries, natural history and gardening book sales and native plant seed sales, plus advice from members together with tours of the Quinta.

The main aim of the fair is to encourage gardeners to buy the right plants for our Mediterranean Algarve climate. Apart from ornamental shrubs, trees and plants, there will be fruit trees, vegetable plants and herbs for sale.

The event will feature free talks:

  • 11.30am ‘An Introduction to Permaculture’, by Julia Thiemicke.
  • 1pm ´Wormeries and Soil Improvement´ by Nelson Lourenço.
In addition, there will be a speakers corner with a talk about the pH (relative acidity and alkalinity) of soils and an introduction to the exciting new MGAP project for an indigenous plant demonstration garden, which is on the same site as the Spring Fair.

Free parking on site, plant creche and refreshments.
Entry fee €1.
