The ornamental kitchen garden

An ornamental kitchen garden has been set up at the end of the historical collection. It has an educational purpose in that it presents the different plants, which include ancient varieties that are little-known to the general public, but is also pleasing for the original displays that are renewed every year.



The educational kitchen garden or “natural garden”

The educational kitchen garden supports the gardening lessons and educational workshops organized by the botanical garden.

Various ecological gardening techniques are highlighted: the different types of mulching, lasagne gardening, etc. It’s also here that you’ll find the “composting hens”.
