From our wilder side to our more manicured gardens, Jersey has a flora offering that will keep even the keenest green fingered enthusiast busy!

The Botanic Gardens of Samarès Manor

You’d be forgiven in thinking that you had stepped back in time to the 1920s, when entering this wonderful Manor, as this was when the garden was originally constructed! As you enter you’ll soon discover the beautiful Manor house dating, back in part, to Norman times. You will soon lose yourself in the variety of gardens created here, discovering everything from herb gardens to Japanese gardens, to field walks through areas set aside for wildflowers.
