France – Brittany : The exotic Garden of Roscoff

ICI & LA NATURE PICTURES

The Roscoff rocky outcrop is particulary protected. Very mild winters have allowed the development of an exuberant exotic garden overlooking the marina.

In the 18th century, after the decline of its maritime trade, Roscoff became a “corsair city” but a was also one of the main smuggling port with England, selling Bordeaux Wine, alcohol and tea!

The Jardin Exotique de Roscoff is located in Northern Brittany coast but thanks to the influence of sea currents the plantation of more than 3500 species from the Southern Hemisphere is possible. If you arrive in France bu boat from England come and discover these plants growing outside : cacti, succulents, protea, palms, yuccas and many more.
