(ADW) It was after a trip to the UK Gilbert Folschette began developing his own English garden in Leudelange; “ordered disorder" as he likes to call it. 15 acres of garden stretch around his house welcoming many varieties of plants.

"My garden is mostly composed of white and grey, colours that I like, I don’t really like too colourful gardens"

If you do not know what a “Pyrus salicifolia pendula” is, then visit the garden of Gilbert Folschette! It is a welcoming terrain where you will discover various collections of ferns and hostas, his passion for rusty sculptures and hundreds of roses that punctuate their ‘whiteness’ in Gilbert’s garden.

Each season has its share of surprises and Gilbert Folschette is often on the lookout for new ‘products’ offered by nature: "At this moment, I particularly like a wild rose that grows at the bottom of my garden full of red berries!”

Gilbert Folschette’s garden can be visited from May to September by appointment, but the owner advises that it is best to visit between May and June when the roses are in bloom!
