Gardens of North West France

The North West of France is wonderful gardening country with a fairly high rainfall and temperatures that tend not to get as scorching as the South. Some of France's best gardens are in this region.

Don' t miss Les Jardins de Kerdalo, Le Clos du Coudray, La Petite Rochelle, Les Jardins de Castillon or one of my personal favourites - Le Jardin Plume which mixes formal box edging with a fabulous mix of grasses and colourful perennials within the box shapes.

For enthusiasts of Japanese gardens there is also the wonderful Parc Oriental de Maulevrier.
