What you'll do

You will be catapulted into the heart of the Riviera of Flowers where you can visit ancient nurseries with historical and spectacular specimens of succulents, succulents and palm trees. It will be explained how they are created and how they can be maintained without problems also in other areas. You will learn how the production cycle of these exotic plants is and how much time and passion is needed to keep them beautiful and healthy. We will learn about the history of some very important specimens and varieties and the evolution of the flower market from 800 to today. It will also be possible to see the Beodo di Bordighera palm grove, which thanks to the temperate climate is the northernmost in Europe. At the end of the visit you will have the perception of having been in a corner where time has stopped and among palm trees and cacti you will seem to have made a small trip to distant and very different countries.
Other things to note
There are no architectural barriers, the visit is guided by qualified personnel, the plants we have can sting, they must be touched with caution

I am passionate about my city and the area that surrounds it, I studied Landscape Architecture and I manage the family farm.For seven generations we have been producing truly unusual plants with which we make exotic and tropical gardens, taking inspiration from our beautiful landscape of the Riviera dei flowers. I worked in international design studios but I chose to return to live here. Growing the most beautiful plants I find is like cultivating the territory and making it more fascinating. I love plants with particular functions, such as detoxes and those that live without water. I know the local flora and the history of our territory, the traditions, places and local languages, it will be a pleasure to introduce the secrets of my area
