A garden with a rich history of more than 260 years as well as rich in its botanical collections. King Louis XV donated 2000 pounds to the city of Amiens in 1760 in order to build a garden and under the supervision of Academy of sciences a pavilion was built. The garden houses more than 1500 species of plants and flowers dazzling the eye with their colours and their row formation. Luckily the garden remained unscathed during the revolution and has since become the reference for botany. It’s divided into many sections such as:
- Human consumption
- Health and medicine
- Knowledge of plants
- Man & industry
The dye plants used in textile industry, herbs for medicine, edible plants for consumption, the variety of plants in each of the categories is staggering. Other than that there are several greenhouses built purely for rare species of trees and flowers. Overall a brilliant visit.

Jardin Des Plantes Reviews & Ratings
Interesting historical background narrated by the guide with a variety of local plants to observe. The gardens are in need of upkeep to make them more appealing to tourists.
Relatively small but cosy and educational garden, to rest in yet another green area in Amiens.
Compact, pleasant, quiet and well labelled. Access summit roundabout during Road repair.
