This August the biennial flower carpet on the Grand- Place will be back, 1,800m² filled with over half a million flowers, mostly begonias. The country of honour this year is Mexico. We hear from Richard Poncin, the CEO of Tapis de Fleurs de Bruxelles, from  the carpet’s designer, Ana Rosa Aguilar Aguado and from Sylvia Reyes, cultural attaché at the Mexican Embassy.
