The cover illustration of THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN number 30, October 2020 is an etching by Delia Delderfield and given the title
“LOTUS FRUIT, GREECE”

Persimmon, Diospyros kaki, Lotus is mentioned in many issues of
THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN

I chose number 27, January 2002 to read

The cover illustration for THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN number 31, January 2003 is by Polly Morris

It depicts Sea Campion, Silene maritima, and Rock Samphire, Crithum maritimum

I have a photo of Crithum maritimum taken in 1996 on the island of Skyros.
It was growing in what remains of an ancient quarry on the beach at Puria / Πουριά

Crithum maritimum is mentioned in several issues of THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN, I have chosen number 95, January 2019 for you to read
BOTANISING IN TUNISIA by Jonny Bruce
