Gardens

Québec’s gardens marvelously balance untamed nature with horticultural know-how and elegant artistry. Born from a grafting of French and English traditions, they offer some of the prettiest retreats imaginable!

Gardens to visit during springtime

Each year, Gaspésie’s Jardins de Métis/Reford Gardens host the highly innovative International Garden Festival.

Here are a few gardens to visit this spring, just when everything is coming back to life—not just flower gardens, but all those green spaces filled with diverse plants, like young flower shoots, trees and shrubs, many native and some imported. 

Don’t let the grass grow around your feet and start planning your trip!
