Spring is the best time of the year because the weather during spring time is so suitable for regrowth of those trees and plants that lost most of their leaves in winter. Slowly by slowly there will be more peeks from the sun and the air and the soil starts to warm up. Spring in full swing is a wonderland for gardeners and botanists because trees begin to thicken their leaves making it greener and fuller, and most significantly, flowers will start blooming here and there. Europe boasts a lot of magnificent gardens and although it’s quite hard to choose, we have decided to pick the top 4 mesmerizing gardens in this continent.
