Tell us about your background…I have always had a passion for the garden, but I did not immediately think of making it my profession. In my opinion, the profession of nurseryman is hardly compatible with family life, as the schedules are restrictive. So I practiced accounting for 20 years, my first professional life in a way, then I had the project of associating with someone to get started in the world of gardening. The children had grown up and I could afford to have a lower salary so that I could simply live my passion! The project could not succeed, so it was only that I embarked on the adventure of the garden of Adoué. My husband Jean-Luc obviously supported me a lot - and helped me - in this project, but I still carried it at arm's length.
How is the Jardin d'Adoué structured?
In this regard, what are the most emblematic plants in your garden?I try as much as possible to revive the old plants that were created in the region, those that I call "grandmother plants": old bell towers, heucheres, phlox ... The latter were in all the gardens of our ancestors because they served to flower the churches on Sunday. You should know that Lorraine has known several renowned horticulturalists in the 19th and 20th centuries; I therefore perpetuate a regional tradition in a way, even if I am much less famous.
You have many activities apart from maintenance and visits to the garden…It is true that I am rather busy, between the nursery, my online catalog of plants (//www.jardin-adoue.com/jardindadoue/2389/boutique), very busy springs in plantations, in maintenance, in events of all kinds around plants ... But it remains a pleasure at all times!
