For its sixth secret about your favorite city, Urban Flat in Paris, presents you the wonderful Alpine garden hidden in the heart of Paris, in the garden of plants in the 5th arrondissement.
Not known, the Alpine garden is well hidden, it is almost buried, located 3 meters deeper than the terraces, to create a rugged terrain.
Around 1930, botanists had the original idea to gather in the same garden, and that in Paris, many plants from various corners of the world (Alps, Mediterranean …).
As you believe, it took the best gardeners to create an environment that resembled their home environment.
