Ghent Floralies My Paradise, a worldly garden

From April 29 to May 8, 2022

Cities have less and less space for greenery in the city. Floralies 2022 will provide a counter-image for 10 days with a dynamic, green and thriving environment realized by the local and international horticulture sector.

There are also workshops, pop-ups, green and concept rooms. At Floralies 2022 you will see the latest developments in the field of trends, sustainability, research & innovation.

The theme of this edition of the Floralies is “My Paradise, a World Garden”.

In our modern society, people are increasingly looking for silence, tranquility, themselves and their personal paradise. That paradise is different for everyone. It can be a green living room, urban greenery, parks, nature reserves or your own garden.

The Ghent Altarpiece by the Van Eyck brothers and a printout of Bishop Triest's garden are the starting point and source of inspiration for “My Paradise, a Worldly Garden”. The flower exhibition paints a picture of the migration of flowers and plants. It also pays attention to the past and present of Ghent and to the green, liveable and makeable city.
