Love a good garden? These are the holiday destinations for you.
If you’re planning a holiday to take in some stunning gardens, check out these three locations for flora and fauna, plus when to go and what you’ll see.
1. Guernsey, Channel Islands
Guernsey and neighbouring Channel Islands off the Normandy coast are in the sunniest spot in British Isles, claiming more then 2,000 hours of sunshine per year.
With such a temperate climate, there are blooms all over the island’s 24 square miles, including more than 1,000 window boxes, hanging baskets and other planters in the capital St Peter Port alone, providing a colourful accessory to this pretty town’s cobbled streets and picture postcard marina.
And that’s before you find an array of flora and fauna on the historic Candie Gardens.
Walkers can wind their way on a clifftop path along the south coast.
