The gardening event of La Ballue!
For its 10th 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.
And the topiaries themselves will be available for purchase!
A lecture on "Boxwood moth, diagnosis and biological control" will be given at 3:30 PM on both Saturday afternoon, in partnership with Districo Espaces verts, Agrial group.

We are very pleased to inform you that the international jury for the European Garden Award awarded the second prize to the Gardens of la Ballue in the category « Restoration, Enhancement or Development of a Historic Park or garden".
This award recognizes a European garden that has undergone an exemplary development and restoration, and where actions in favor of welcoming the public have also been at the heart of the development of this unique site.
The first prize was awarded to the Peterhof gardens in Russia.
On the afternoon of the 15th September 2017, the finalists within each category were honoured in Berlin, on the site of the International Gartenausstellung IGA Berlin 2017.
The gardens of la Ballue were selected by the EGHN (joined in 2014).
The Chateau of La Ballue, located just 30 minutes from the Mont-Saint-Michel and 1 hour from Saint-Malo, will be the ideal place to spend a stay between Brittany and Normandy and to come to benefit from a splendid sight.
Indeed, about twenty times per year, the highest tides phenomena takes place in Mont-Saint-Michel to give it again its insularity.
The high ranges, higher to 100, promise a spectacular show only during 4:30.
This phenomena takes place also in Saint-Malo.
This is the first book entirely dedicated to the beautiful Gardens of La Ballue. It is hardbound, 144 pages, has 150 photos, is in both French and English. The authors are Yann Monel, "Images et Sens" and Marianne Niermans for the texts, and the book is published by P.H. Verlhac. It is sold at the store on the site and also in bookstores.
