Visit the garden on rue des Petits Prés

For his garden, Thierry Floreau wanted everything except plants and compositions seen and reviewed under our skies. It was this taste for novelty and the challenge it represented that led him to take an interest in exotic plants. In the garden adjoining his pavilion, our gardener has composed multiple plant scenes to honor these beautiful visitors from elsewhere: flowerbeds of varying heights, flowerbeds with irregular shapes, rock gardens or even green spaces around the banks of the ponds that 'he has furnished himself. You have to believe, given the luxuriance of his garden, that the plants appreciated the efforts made to allow them to acclimatize. Efforts also welcomed by visitors to the garden, welcomed by Thierry Floreau in person for the duration of a visit. Our gardener sees these moments as a special opportunity to communicate his passion. A passion and a work recognized and rewarded last year by the 3rd prize of Bonpland 2014.
