Saturday May 7th & Sunday May 8th 2016
The Ephrussi de Rothschild Villa is preparing for the 7th annual Roses and Plants Festival. On May 7 and 8 , some twenty exhibitors, rose growers, nursery owners and professionals from the world of gardens are heading to the villa to pass on their passion and knowledge about flowers to the general public. Walk through a plethora of climbing roses and ground-cover roses, both old and modern, in a huge range of colours (pink, red, yellow, white, orange) from the softest of pastels to the brightest red.
Whether a novice or more experienced gardener, the different exhibitors have something for everyone. Alongside the rose growers, in the avenues of the French garden you can find other professionals displaying rare plants, exotic or Mediterranean flowers, irises, citrus fruits and much more.
Several activities are also on offer to allow both adults and children to explore the world of plants: guided tours of the nine themed gardens at the Ephrussi de Rothschild Villa, workshops runs by florists to teach you to make bouquets, or by gardeners to learn the best way to repot plants.
If you want to go beyond the basics and learn more about roses and horticulture, you can listen to the talks given by the French Rose Society, or ask the gardeners questions – they will be happy to help.
