French Gardens Today was set up by Clare Whately in 2005 after discovering the quality of these unknown gardens in northern France. Taken over by Susan Worner in 2011, it continues in the same spirit, selecting only superb gardens sometimes gaining access by invitation of the garden owners and their friends.
People who travel with Susan include those who open their own gardens in the UK, garden designers, nurserymen, garden writers, and of course people who love gardens and like visiting them. The level of knowledge varies but all are interested and happy to find they are meeting like-minded men and women of all ages.
It is because the French garden owners enjoy the appreciation of our guests that they like opening their gardens to French Gardens Today.
