Igalo – International exhibition of flowers, which is traditionally being organized during the “Festivity of mimosa” was opened yesterday in villa “Galeb”, in Igalo, the ex residence of the former president of SFRJ, Josip Broz Tito.
– Everything is the same only he is gone – said the singer Tijana Dapcevic, who opened the exhibition.
In an extremely beautiful space of the villa, more than 40 firms from Montenegro and Serbia displayed the cut flowers, tree material, food and medications made on the base of the herbs, flowerpots, decorative and items for everyday use.
The visitors were able to see and meet the characteristics of more than 150 plant species.
-We tried to make the exhibit have a more Mediterranean spirit and that the most of the plants are from these areas or that at least it grows in our areas – said the organizer of the manifestation, Jovanka Matkovic.
Firm “Primavera” from Herceg Novi this year too offered interesting, and for this area, not so frequent plant species. Those are several kinds of “rhododendrons”, whose mother country is Great Britain, but, as the engineer of landscape architecture, Vesna Vidic says, they will adapt well to this area too.
“Ekoplant” from Podgorica for the first time on the market of Montenegro offered the new kind of citrus “Calamondino”, originally from Arabian countries. That kind is not edible, but it is decorative.
The trunk of “Calamondino”, two meters high, was sold for 197€, and a smaller offspring was sold for 17, 50€.
Initiator and the organizer of the first, but also 20 up coming exhibits of flowers, horticultural expert MA Ante Sternisa thinks that it is a good idea that the exhibit was organized in villa “Galeb” this year, whose garden is a certain botanical garden with more than 150 plant species, and among them are some really rare ones.
Sternisa says that it would be a good idea, that as a part of some upcoming exhibition, a sightseeing of the garden of the villa “Galeb” with a guide is organized which he is sure would attract the great number of flower funs, but also other people interested.
This year’s exhibit, he added lacks in rich arrangements made from cut flowers. The exhibit of flowers will be closed in Sunday.
IVOVIC’S STAND THE MOST BEAUTIFUL
The most beautiful stand, adapted for the fair manifestations had the producer of camellias from Kumbor, Petar Ivovic.
From old beams and Mediterranean plants he made a bower. The majority of other producers mostly had the stands adapted just for sale.
