Visit the Jardins de Cadiot
This is a lovely garden made up of about 10 individual gardens of different styles and covers 10 hectares.
All in all there are about 1500 varieties of plants and there is always something in flower.
Of the ten gardens my favourites are the English garden (le jardin Anglais), the Italian style garden (le jardin de buis) and the patios.
In the Italian garden are fabulous huge pots of Agapanthus as well as lots of box trimmed into cones and garden edges.
There is also a rose garden, peony garden and a woods which has some beautiful palms amongst the more typical woodland trees.
The large border of heleniums in a lovely vibrant orange is wonderful and inspired me to go home and plant as many as possible of this lovely plant in my own garden.
The Jardins of Cadiot have big collections of ancient roses, peonies, grasses, sages, hemerocallis and hydrangeas as well as Japanese acers.
