Le Jardin Solstice – Festival International des Jardins au Domaine de Chaumont-sur-Loire 2020 by Nicholas TOMLAN – ONLINE

Solstice – The International Garden Festival at Chaumont-sur-Loire 2020

Nicholas Tomlan’s design, which won the Best Creation award for the festival, was inspired by ancient civilizations and their ideas on the origin of the world. To return to Mother Earth, Nicholas invites you to take a trip to Delphi in Ancient Greece. There, on a hill is a temple once dedicated to Gaia, built where two important solstice lines cross. To the Ancient Greeks, this was the origin of the Earth. These lines were laid out from Delphi to the Atlantic, crossing ancient Gaul along the way.The garden was laid out on two solstice lines, and evokes a ruin where the process of nature is evolving during the festival. The garden was planted with pioneer plants, and planting combinations that give the appearance of natural occurring landscapes.
