Jardin Exotique et Botanique, Roscoff

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.
