Learn about gardening at Jardin Daniel A. Séguin

In the Montérégie region is a wonderful garden called Jardin Daniel A. Séguin. This veritable floral park cranks up the charm with about twenty themed gardens showcasing a great diversity of flowers.

Visitors choose this beautiful place not only for its exquisite fragrances, but also for the advice they can get on choosing their plants this year. In Quebec, the Les Exceptionnelles program, selects the best annual flowers and vegetable plants. Thanks to the vote of a committee of experts and the public, only plants with a natural performance pass the selection test; that's why they are “exceptional”. Those plants are then found in a large number of garden centres in Quebec. You too can reap knowledge and learn about plant life by visiting the Jardin Daniel A. Séguin, starting June 5.
