The International ornamentals and vegetal show Floralies is back for a 12th edition on May 8-19th 2019 in Nantes (France). The International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH) approved the show as a ‘C Category International Horticultural Show’ during their meeting in Melbourne on 21st March where they actively encouraged participation in the event.
Floralies Nantes is a major event in Western France and is internationally renowned. It takes place every five years in the La Beaujoire exhibition park. After the success of « Art Bouquets » in 2014, the whole ornamental design of the 2019 edition will have « Fleurs à vivre » (flowers to live by) as a theme.
Inspired by a quote from Montaigne, « If life is nothing more than a passage, let’s at least sow flowers along it », the theme will be divided into seven ambiances presented all throughout the indoor and outdoor areas of the park, giving the visitor a sense of change of scenery, enchantment and wonder.
