For members living in Italy or indeed anyone travelling in Italy at the right time the "Murabilia" garden fair held in Lucca is well worth a visit. The fair takes place this year 2nd, 3rd and 4th September. Google "Murabilia" or click here for full information.

Thanks, Carole: this is exactly the sort of thing that's well worth telling people about.

For anybody in  or around Rome the last weekend in April there is the twice-yearly plant show at La Landriana https://www.landriana.com/ Worth a visit. There is usually a bus service laid on from the local train station to the garden except on Sunday. Then you would have a 7km walk there and 7km back along a fairly busy road with no pavement.
I have a small garden in Rome, Italy. Some open soil, some concrete, some paved. Temperatures in winter occasionally down to 0C. Summer temperatures up to 40C in the shade. There are never watering restrictions but, of course, there is little natural water for much of June, July and August.
