The Orangerie at Versailles was built by Jules Hardouin-Mansart between 1684 and 1686, before work on the palace had even begun. It is an example of many grand gardens in Europe designed both to shelter tender plants and impress visitors. In the winter, the Orangerie houses more than a thousand trees in boxes. From May to October, they are put outdoors in the Parterre Bas.
