The Gardens of Kerdalo


Prologue

Kerdalo

The Gardens of Kerdalo were developed in 1965. They owe their existence to the creative imagination and artistic talent of Peter Wolkonsky, who was fascinated by the acidic soils and hilly terrain of an old farmstead overlooking the Jaudy river.

"Kerdalo is a fragile world; it is at the mercy of the weather, climate change and pollution. It is a magical world which is introspective, secretive and arcane, and it is both natural and designed. The botanic and romantic universes meet here." (Peter Wolkonsky)
