Growing bulbs-flowery pots-tray Like each year, on the first Sunday of April, the Vide Jardin is on in Trévérien.

A Vide-jardin is a car boot sale (a plant sale, really) where you can buy plants/shrubs/flowers and gardening tools. It is not very common in France but this one in Brittany has been organised each year for about 8 or 9 years. It is very successful and attracts a lot of people.

You can get some real bargains there – a lot cheaper than at the garden centres for sure!

It starts from 10 am and is on all day.

Admission is free.

Trévérien is in Brittany near Evran, and 20 minutes from Dinan.
