Quiet American Gardener, The: Jardin Serre De La Madone
1 x 60'
Lawrence Johnston embarked on creating a second garden at Menton in the South of France. Like Hidcote, Jardin Serre de la Madone was a farm that Johnston turned into a magnificent garden. After Johnston’s death in the 1950s, Serre passed through the hands of a series of different owners and was nearly lost, but its reputation was kept alive by a handful of enthusiastic garden connoisseurs.
