At the Gardens of the Wuthering Heights (Les Jardins des Hurlevents in french), on the hills over Vichy, a bucolic walk is expecting you, where you can discover its plants and their riches. The hanging garden has a belvedere from where you can admire the view over the Allier valley and the mountain chain of the Puys.
The plants that have been lovingly planted and grown from root cuttings are living in perfect harmony with the environment surrounding them. Far from the nursery industry, it's an organic and natural cultivation of these eternal plants that is offered to you and your gardens.
Between passion and ambition, landscape gardener and nurserywoman Virigine Clavel, and specialized in perennial plants, has the project to always extend her cultivation and to propose more and more varieties to make her gardens into a unique place.
