Yves Gosse de Gorre designed the garden in 1985. Alleys connect a series of garden rooms. Features include a rose tunnel, award winning topiary and even some craters. There is also a fine nursery.
Visited first week in May 2013 and surprised by reduction in admission price due to lateness of plant development due to bad winter and frost but found this to be a very thought provoking garden and designed by plants persons with a sense of purpose and humour. Well worth a visit, we really enjoyed it and would love to return later in the year when all the plants recovered and lush. Topiary especially excellent. Good value which is rare to find.
Part catalogue for the father and son duo of landscape architects and part politico-artistic manifesto, this garden plays with form and flow to create surprising spaces and enchanting rooms. No herbaceous borders but bold architectural topiary and structure. There is a nursery on site although few rare species that I spotted, this is rather a garden of ideas.
What a fantastic garden. A plethora of well designed areas,full of intriguing plant and space usage or combinations.
To see Rosa American pillar sprawled over a copper beech hedge gave a whole new view on plant combiantions. The 'Cathedral' is sublime as is the extensive froth of pink roses beyond it.
The owner knows his stuff and seems to have fun as well.
