Dig It! Chateau de Gruyères (17 September 2018)

Dig It! // Gardening & Green Spaces// WRS// General // By Mark // Sept. 17, 2018

In my travels all around Switzerland this summer, researching for a book, I've been able to visit some marvellous, magical gardens, and the garden in the Chateau de Gruyères is one of my favourites. The box-edged parterre is planted with a riot of colour, managing to be modern and lively as well as respecting the traditions of the garden too. The garden is open April to October, so you have a couple of weeks left to visit before it closes for the winter, so go while the weather is still nice. For details head to www.chateau-gruyeres.ch
