Bellona Garden Tour

Bellona Garden Tour

Who is passionate and has a green thumb, nothing is impossible in gardening! This is evidenced by the journey of the owner of the premises who knew how to make this land of 2,000 m2, located in the Doubs, a place of welcome for many rare and exotic plants. This is how, in this so-called "Bellona" garden in homage to an old neighboring sanctuary dedicated to the god Mars and the goddess of war Bellone -, today a Tasmanian tree fern, flowers Rostrata yuccas, trachycarpus, agaves as well as many varieties adepts of an exotic rockery environment. How do these plants, born in a milder climate, manage to adapt to the continental harshness of the Doubs? The key is coexistence with native trees - birch, cedar, maple, etc. - which provide protection from the weather for their young guests. When added to basic winter protection, winter can pass without leaving marks other than the memory of the foliage show or a gazebo with a round roof covered with snow ... Romantic, exotic, even Japanese sometimes, this Bellona garden has no shortage of assets to surprise the visitor!
