Montreal is definitely known for it's gorgeous Botanical Gardens, however it seems to have some majestic competition coming from the north-east of Quebec. The Jardins de Métis is DROP. DEAD. GORGEOUS.
Not only are we lucky enough that this spectacular botanical garden is located right here in Quebec, but it is also hosting the International Garden Festival! This mean the gardens will be hosting art pieces and more than 160 exhibits. Lucky for us, this year happens to be its 18th edition!
Reford Gardens (in English), is English-styled and located at Grand-Métis, Quebec. It was originally private, but the gardens were opened to the public in 1962. It is absolutely stunning and is home to over 3,000 plants thanks to the St.Lawrence River.
