Botanica Insolita, Puerto Portals 2014

Exactly the same as the Chelsea Flower Show, but different!

With British television screens currently full of the biggest horticultural event of the year, the Chelsea Flower Show, it's a good time to tell you about a similar event in Palma. "http://www.botanicainsolita.com/home.htm" target="_blank">Botanica Insolita is a smaller, but nevertheless just as interesting version, of Chelsea taking place in Puerto Portals in just over a
week's time.

The upmarket yacht marina plays host to the event on Friday 30th May to Sunday 1st June which features lots of plants as well as eating, drinking and live music – ideal for couples like me and my
Mrs, she can admire the garden design skills on show whilst I master the art of watching G&T's being poured!

It's an all encompassing event with flowers, plants, landscaping, garden design, ecological products, workshops and education for kids and all takes place from 11.00 until 21.00. Entertainment with
local comedy/brass band faves, Wonderbrass and all the way from Brazil, Flavia-N, fusing Jazz and Bossa Nova starts at 18.00 each day.

Sounds like an interesting weekend, particularly if you're on holiday in Mallorca and are keen to see just how different the plants and flowers are which can be grown in our lovely climate. Why not
come along, it's free!
