“Explore the Jardin de Liliane You enter the Jardin de Liliane at the top of a gentle hill and can see the garden spreading out in front of you. A lovely verdant vision with the many shades of green punctuated by flowers of roses, day lillies, geraniums, phlox and many more favourites as well as an interesting selection of unusual plants. This garden is far from the traditional French garden style with its clipped box parterres and formal planting. Here big old trees line both edges of the garden and in the shade beneath grow large viburnums whose white panicules light up the deeper shade. There are also snakes-bark maple, acers and many interesting varieties of shrubs and trees. Closer to the sweeping lawns are plants chosen for their interesting foliage, hostas, ferns, geraniums and grasses. And amongst these many roses and herbacious perennials ensuring there is a succession of flowers to add colour to the garden. Liliane, herself, is very knowledgable about the plants and shrubs in the garden and, if you speak French, she can point out the unusual varieties. The garden has developed over the last 30 or so years and incredibly is now gardened only by Liliane. Admittedly it does have a slightly wild quality rather than an incredibly manicured finish but that adds to its charm. Especially when, as Liliane describes many plants arrive by accident - seeded by the wind or birds, providing interesting plant combinations. Visits to the Jardin de Liliane The garden is open during July and August in the afternoons from 14.30 to 18.00 and Sunday afternoon is September from 14.30 to 18.00. Visits cost 6 euros and are free to under 16s. The adress is: Le Jardin de Liliane, Le Chateau des Bermondet, 87310 St Laurent sur Gorre.”
