The Art of Mosaïculture

Mosaïculture is an innovative horticultural technique that intertwines art and nature to create topiary-like sculptures. It is one of the most challenging horticultural techniques to execute.  

The origins of Mosaïculture date back to the 16th and 17th centuries, with the actual term coined in the late 1860s in Lyon, France.  

This art form blends the colour, texture, and form of  thousands of living plants and flowers, using wire frames to create intricate three-dimensional designs, resulting in a whimsical garden experience that redefines modern horticulture.
