The Marqueyssac Gardens are in the Dordogne Valley in France. I have not yet had the chance to visit them, but it is top on my list to visit when I do finally make it to France. This is probably the most interesting use of clipping and training plants that I have ever seen. The predominate plant used here is Buxus sempervirens. Marqueyssac is a fantastic and fantastical example of garden architecture and the development and manipulation of space that I think is so important. This is absolutely amazing….
