About the garden
La Seigneurie Gardens Trust
The gardens at La Seigneurie have largely been developed within the old Walled Garden and adapted to the formal layout. The vinery is Victorian and has been recently restored; the box-edged Rose Garden probably dates back 100 years and the remainder of the garden is modern.
There is a small exhibition of seigniorial history in the restored chapel for visitors to explore. The fruit and vegetable gardens aim to inspire those who grow their own produce and the sensory garden has been created to stimulate all five senses.
The circular Millennium Rose Garden contains roses chosen for their free-flowering and scent, and much of the planting is colour-themed with the white border enjoying particular success. Tender plants flourish on this small island where frost is almost unknown. Callistemons grow on walls and there is a maze made of Olearia paniculata hedges.
