Miromesnil est un château et un potager remarquable.
Repris en 1938 par les grands parents de Nathalie Romatet, ce jardin totalement repensé et redessiné dans les années 1950 est devenu un incontournable des jardins normands.
Autant nourricier que paysager et situé dans un cadre féérique, vous y découvrirez les légumes normands, des variétés oubliées et les fleurs de nos jardins de grand-mère, comme autant de souvenirs d’enfance.
On Britain in Bloom episode 11, Chris Bavin meets a group of extraordinary Bloomers who must start from scratch every year after their gardening efforts are literally washed away. Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire is at the confluence of four rivers, which makes for a lovely setting, but one that devastates the town to a greater or lesser degree every year when the waters rise and flood the town.
In the Beechgrove Garden episode 4 2018, after the success of the no-dig observation of last year, Jim is extending the trial into the polytunnel, comparing conventionally grown vegetables with easy-grow no-dig vegetable plots. Brian is in Armadale, helping Lesley Welsh and her two children to create a bespoke vegetable plot for the family. Lesley wants the children to be able to easily grow their own and take their own home-grown produce from fork to fork.
Brian is also in Tranent, visiting Wattie Russell. Wattie was nominated as one of Scotland’s Garden Heroes, and Brian visits to see why. Wattie’s inspirational, but tightly packed, garden in Tranent is full of spring beauties with around 500 different pots of colour.
On Britain in Bloom episode 10, Chris Bavin heads to the historic market town of Oakham in Rutland where the Bloomers are having to cope with major roadworks around the town. They can’t avoid them, so the team has decided to embrace the construction with a roadworks-themed Bloom entry.
In Britain in Bloom episode 9, Chris Bavin travels to the Lincolnshire coast to meet a group of dedicated Bloomers determined to put the ‘Great’ back into Great Grimsby. Last year their council funding for Bloom was cut and the volunteers had to drop out of the competition, but they are back and have created a social enterprise company to raise funds.
In Gardeners World episode 7 2018 – Despite the slow awakening of the garden this year, there are still plenty of jobs to be getting on with and Monty begins to divide ornamental grasses and plant up an alpine trough. He also gives advice on what to do with containers which are past their best and what to sow in the vegetable garden at this time of year.
There is a full hour of inspiration as Monty works in his vegetable garden sowing seeds for a bountiful summer, grows some more unusual vegetables and recommends varieties of summer bulbs to plant in the spring.
Non loin du château de Maintenon dont elle dépendait autrefois, la ferme de Bois Richeux a été restaurée par ses actuels propriétaires. La ferme est l’une des plus vieilles fermes de France établie, à l’époque celte, au centre de la forêt des Carnutes. Un jardin d’inspiration médiévale, itinéraire dans la symbolique du Moyen Age, a été conçu au coeur des bâtiments.
