'La Source' is the name of the former chateau and estate in which a floral display ground has been established (eg for roses, chrysanthemums, iris and bedding plants).
Very disapointed as far as the attendance to flowers and bushes. Rose bushes poorly looked after and watering is very much needed. Apart from that, very pretty and relaxing. My only real complaint is the poor care u give to the birds especially the Australian cockatoos. I couldn't believe my eyes seeing them sitting on one dead branch, no vegetation , no living plants , grass or trees within the cage......just a dead branch. That is disgusting and needs attention immediately .
What a beautiful patch of heaven outside of Orleans. Don't miss a stop here along with your visits to Les Grands Chateaux de la Loire. Pack a sandwich saucisson et beurre and some abricots and enjoy the stroll, content in the knowledge that this is one of the Orleanais' hidden jewels.
Parc Floral de la Source is a wonderful garden. The park is very large and features a range of gardens. The flower beds are packed and have a fairly English-style of informal planting quite rare to find in French gardens. I just wish I lived a bit closer and could visit it at different times throughout the year. The range of plants is enormous and the planting very well thought out and successfull.
