Immersion in the Normandy bocage
To the west of the Perche, the bocages and forests conceal some garden gems, very different from each other. Shade garden, collection of shrubs, contemporary space, Renaissance-inspired garden: so many addresses to explore during the summer, from the Andaine region to the Domfrontais.
The Charterhouse of Colombier
In Périgord, Bernard Hautefort has patiently designed over the years a plant environment that subtly highlights the architecture of the place around a charterhouse and its outbuildings.
Between art and nature
The Jardin des Oules in the Gard
This large garden is an example of a successful staging of contemporary works of art in a carefully restored plant setting which is entirely devoted to enjoying the discovery and highlighting them.
The nemesias, also called Cape snapdragons, work wonders in the plantations of borders, baskets and suspensions with their generous flowering. Often restricted to urban compositions because they last all summer, they are with petunias and other snapdragons, the little hands of summer flowering, and we can appreciate them as such with their multicolored finery full of fantasy.
Le Jardin des Sources in Normandy
Bathed in three springs, the garden delivers resplendent combinations of foliage and its water garden is in itself a small masterpiece. The Jardin des Sources also highlights the roses, which flourish in most of the beds accompanied by pavost and nepetas.
Oakleaf hydrangeas, a spectacle from summer to fall
Oak-leaved hydrangeas (H. quercifolia) offer a wide variety of volumes and offer the means to liven up the beds until the end of the season. Here is a review of best-sellers in the collection of the Hortensias du Haut-Bois nursery in Brittany.
In Loire-Atlantique, a blazing bias
A generous exoticism, however controlled, makes all the charm of this private garden of Machecoul, created by Michel Béranger. This plant lover loves in particular the coral or erythrina tree, native to South America, of which he has gathered a fine collection, grown in the ground or under cover.
In Alsace a farandole of roses
Entirely designed around a traditional pavilion, this private garden, Farandole pour un Curieux (farandole for a Curious), pays homage to roses, combined with compositions of perennials.
