The Läckö Slott Castle Gardens, part 1

September 19th, 2016

As I was looking through my photos of at the Läckö Slott Castle, I quickly realized their gardens were too lovely to be cut down to one post. I’ll start with the upper garden, which is where we came into the garden. It’s perched up above the walled garden overlooking the lake and with stunning views of the castle towering above it. Part of this garden is an herb garden, part a vegetable garden, and part consists of cold frames for growing out plants. Photographs never do gardens like this justice, theres’s simply too much complexity and detail to get in. I hope you enjoy this garden in the few details I was able to capture.
Check back tomorrow for the second part of this garden, the lower section that was filled with vegetables neatly arranged in stunning patterns.

    Susy, I love the rock walls that circumvents the manicured hedge. It just fits the castle more I think. But then I’m partial to rocks anyway. Since I love a good garden project, my thoughts always wander to when the rocks wall were constructed. I have to wonder how many did it take to build them; how long did it take; when was it built. Working with rocks is a back breaking skill that takes a long time to build massive castle walls but they last for ever. It’s one of the reasons I’m using rock in Terra Nova Gardens. Once I get it done, I’ll never have to re do it again. I will be working there today cleaning up the garden beds preparing for the Winter rest.

    Have a great trip memory lane day.

    If you want to see vegetables grown in stunning patterns visit Chateau Villandry near Tours in France or its web site
