The garden, even in September, was just a delight! If you are ever in Brittany do try and visit. There were hardly any other visitors apart from us and we were able to wander around at leisure, uncrowded. I certainly return plan to return. We started in the greenhouses, filled with amazing succulents, and then started following the outside route.
The Jardin Exotique et Botanique at Roscoff is an extraordinary garden which started in 1986 when the Department of Finistère bought the Roc d’Hievec and gifted it to Roscoff. Two remarkable men, Louis Kerdilès and Daniel Person, then created a garden which today is pure delight, with plants from around the world and nearly one third from South Africa – so I felt at home!
I started in the hothouses where the succulents were astounding.
