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.

  • Very dissapointed, expect more.

  • Très bonne explication. Bien entretenue. Fontaine propre. Cadre très agréable

  • Très beau Jardin, un des plus ancien ! Très bien entretenu, encore vert, fleuri et coloré même en août : ce qui est rare ! Classement intéressant et peu d'étiquettes manquantes ! Bravo ! Endroit calme avec banc autour d'une fontaine !

  • De taille modeste mais très bien agencé. J'ai eu beaucoup de plaisir à découvrir le secteur des plantes aromatiques en particulier. Par contre le stationnement n'est pas prévu sur le site. Il faut se garer dans les rues alentours.

  • Dommage qu'il soir un peu excentré.. nous l'avons traversé par hasard en s'étant perdu avec la prime a de d une heure de l office de tourisme qui elle est nulle.
