Gardens out of competition

Ephemeral gardens in the “non-competing” category will also be created by the gardeners from the town councils of the 5 towns and the Principality of Monaco, competing in the competition. Three other towns: Cap d'Ail, Mandelieu - La Napoule and Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, and our partners "Campus Vert d’Azur" and "Association of Gardening and Horticultural Journalists" will also be producing their own ephemeral creations.

Ephemeral gardens from competing towns

The 5 competing towns from the Department and the Principality of Monaco will be presenting ephemeral “non-competing” gardens, created by the gardeners from the town councils.

Access to the gardens depends on the sanitary measures in force.
