The island of Mainau

Ein Blumenmeer im Bodensee

Over one million people visit Mainau every year,. The many garden fans among them can really appreciate and marvel at the vast extent of the work carried out by the island’s 60 gardeners. Every autumn half a million bulbs are planted in the island’s fertile soil, which in springtime transform the island into a sweetly scented sea of flowers: 600 different types of tulips, hyacinths and narcissus, not forgetting over  150,000 forget-me-nots, primroses and pansies. In July and August the gardeners have their work cut out caring for the 200,000 colourful summer flowers, quite apart from the palms, citrus trees, Himalayan cedars and magnolias!
