  • Very lukewarm welcome to us garden enthusiasts, more like a wild meadow haphazardly maintained , it's a shame as the site is gorgeous and the original beautifully designed. The current caretakers...

  • Basically €8 to visit someone's garden. The plants are fairly well identified, but when I visited at the beginning of September, it looked rather tired. Maybe better earlier in the season?

  • We visited the Herbarium in St. Valérie as part of a vacation at Baie de Somme. This is not a fancy big museum, it's a very subtle, quiet and beautiful place. A fairy garden with hundreds of little corners and flower beds to discover. There is a greater theme in the whole garden, I suppose, but it's the small things to discover, plants and arts that make this place truely special. A clear recommandation.
  • Such a lovely place hidden away above the town. Cared for by volunteers who do a superb job of creating gardens within a garden. Each sub-plot is dedicated to an individual theme, scent, medicine and even deadly plants. Be sure to go to the back left if the garden as it continues down into another set of levels. There is a small shop where you can buy seeds and goods such as insect houses to support the garden.
