"Topiary, Art and Mannerism" Weekend - May 21-22

From 21 May to 22 May
Demonstrations of pruning, lectures, Workshop, ...

The gardening event of La Ballue!

For its seventh 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.

And the presentation of the detailed maquette of the gardens and topiaries created by Jacques Hennequin.

 

Opening hours: 10:00 AM to 6:30 PM without interruption

Prices: 9,50 euros for adults, 7,50 euros for young people 10-18 years old and students, children under 10 free.

An amazing place to stay, an authentic and confortable castle, with friendly atmosphere, closed Mont Saint Michel and Saint Malo, in Brittany.

High ranges in Mont-Saint-Michel and Saint-Malo

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.
