Le Jardin de Marguerite was the winner of third prize in the "Best Park in France 2007 competition" . This competition sponsored by Briggs and Stratton chooses the top five French gardens each year. In fact they run a similar competion in Britain, Germany, Italy and Sweden. The garden has been awarded "Remarkable Garden of France" status.

The garden was voted the "Preferred garden of the French" in the Alsace region in 2014 by viewers of the France2 television channel.

The garden of Marguerite has a succession of themes. Throughout the garden the sound of water and small waterfalls can be heard and seen adding a freshness to the garden. Largely inspired by English garden style there are lovely large mixed borders and a profusion of old roses.

Le Jardin de Marguerite

The garden is wonderfully verdant with the flowers shining out from the backdrop of hundreds of shades and textures of green.

Each part of the garden has a different ambience and include a rose garden, a garden of colours, a garden of shade and light, a pond and a potager (vegetable garden).

The garden is fairly small at half a hectare but includes around 2000 varieties of plants, including 150 old roses. Marguerite Goetz has been working on this garden for around 30 years and the rewards of her labour are here for all to see.
