Explore the Gardens of Sericourt

The gardens are really a series of different gardens which cover over 4 hectares. A walk around the garden allows you to discover all 29 different gardens which include large statements like the "jardin guerrier" (warrior garden) where yew trees have been shaped into ordered columns inspired by China's terracotta army.

Topiary Garden, Jardins de Sericourt

The war theme continues with the craters in the walk leading up to the warrior garden and the neighbouring "champ de bataille" or battlefield where the red poppies evoke the nearby battlefields of the Somme. The light reflecting on the golden yews of the warrior garden creates an extraordinary depth of colour.

The cathedral of roses is another garden feature of massive proportions and showcases some lovely roses.  A topiary garden, land art, geometric garden and a labyrinth made of grasses are some of the other gardens you will see.

English style flower gardens are not in evidence though there is a perennial garden and a pond, but scale and drama are more the order of the day at Sericourt and this they do very successfully.
