We have been wandering around Nantes for a couple of days now. Nantes tourism has developed a map and route, follow the green line through the heart of the town and see all there is to see on the “Voyage of Nantes” trail. Along the trail we found the “Jardin des PLants” simply translated to English “the Floral Garden.” Set in 7 hectares of town centre, over 50,000 flowers are planted each season, and over 10,000 species live in under 800 m2 of greenhouse space. Given the growing sculptures, winding pathways, pools, ponds, bridges, children’s playground and potted plants set among the flower beds, we can see why this garden is ranked top 4 gardens in France.
I hope you enjoy the gallery of image below, just a small sample of the photos taken during our visit.
