The gardening event of La Ballue!

For its nineth edition, this unique event allows visitors to observe demonstrations of pruning and the creation of topiaries in the Gardens of La Ballue.

Three of our gardeners will demonstrate their considerable skill, showing some of the techniques they use to prune and sculpt our many bushes, shrubs and trees. A range of these tools, along with an explanation of their use and maintenance will be available for viewing in the “tool” workshop.

Hubert Puzenat, the architect of the gardens and a topiary specialist, will create topiary sculptures in person.

A lecture on topiary art will be given at 3:00 PM on both Saturday and Sunday afternoon (time to be confirmed).

And the topiaries themselves will be available for purchase!

There will also be a presentation and signing of the book on the Gardens of La Ballue: “Variations on a garden,” published by Editions P.H. Verlhac, with the photographs of Yann Monel and texts by Marianne Niermans.
