The garden is situated within the park of the former castle of Hemmen. The garden is about 52 metres long and its width varies from 25 to 35 metres. The rose garden forms the very heart of the garden. There are a lot of sweet-smelling roses, among them Rosa ‘Mary Rose’. Different kinds of shrubs have been planted throughout the garden. The walls of the garden can already be found on a map dating back to 1832, but they are probably older. The original garden was a so-called kitchen garden, where vegetables, fruit and flowers were grown. After the Second World War, the garden fell into decay. In the early nineties plans were made to restore the garden. Planting started in 1994 and was completed in 1995. The garden was officially opened on 9th September 1995.
