Visit Jardin aux Plantes la Bouichere

The Jardin aux Plantes Parfumées de la Bouichere, to give it its full name,  is situated in Limoux in the Aude department of south west France

Explore the Jardin aux Plantes Parfumées de la Bouichere

Le Jardin aux plantes la Bouichere is a garden which specialises in scent. There is a 2.5km walk bordered by scented plants, shrubs and trees. There are more than a thousand scented plants in the garden. If, like me, you are trying to fill your garden with more scented plants, this is the garden to come to for ideas and inspiration.

The range of plants in the garden, both scented and non-scented is huge and includes masses of roses as well as more mediterranean plants such as agaves.

There are a whole range of different themed gardens here including a rose garden, a grasses garden, a conifer garden, a dry garden and an attractive vegetable garden.

As well as exploring the garden there is a lot of information of the use of plants across the world and in days gone by.

There are also various colour-themed gardens.

For those with the time (and ability to speak French) there are also workshops teaching various gardening techniques.

There is a tea shop and it is possible to buy plants too at the garden. Those of you with children will enjoy the fishpond and the birds to watch as well as the friendly donkeys.

Gardens to visit nearby

You can't visit the Bouichere garden but never fear there is an excellent garden nearby. The Jardins des Martels is a huge garden with lots of different garden areas and some fabulous planting. Another very popular garden is the Jardin de Saint Adrian which has been created in a disused stone quarry. It is very unusual and very attractive.
