The Montmorillon season opens with the weekend of Jardin Passion: Saturday and Sunday 22/23 April. Here in one place you will find exhibitors and professionals from all fields relating to the garden: horticulturists, nurserymen, landscapers, florists, decoration, do-it-yourself, garden tools (hand-tools and mechanical), garden furniture – everything for the garden from the initial concept and design to planting and maintenance.

Jardin Passion

This weekend we had the annual Jardin Passion.  Over 40 exhibitors displaying (and selling) plants, trees, miniature tractors and indeed everything that the gardener could want to grow flowers, fruit or vegetables.  The events are divided between the centre of town where the newly renovated Place du Maréchal Leclerc hosts about half the stalls and the others are in the Place du Terrier in the Cité de l’Ecrit.  Despite the cold weather the rain held off both Saturday and Sunday and it was good to see our streets actually thronged for a change.  If gardening is your thing then make a note in your diary for next year and put Montmorillon on your itinerary.
