The Cover illustration of THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN number 45, July 2006 is by John Jefferis and shows a view of the “threshing floor” at Sparoza looking towards Mt. Hymettus 

There are six articles in this issue of the journal all about Sparoza and luckily there is a website where you can see some photos and read some of the text

Thanks for this Hilary. I just did a search on the internet for the garden and on their web pages they have a section which gives a list of plants that bloom for them month by month. Expecting to find one or two ideas for adding colour to some of the darker months I was amazed to find a list as long as your arm just for January. Anybody starting a mediterranean garden from scratch or wishing to add a splash of colour to an existing garden could well use this resource as a good starting point.

Thanks again :-)

I have a small garden in Rome, Italy. Some open soil, some concrete, some paved. Temperatures in winter occasionally down to 0°C. Summer temperatures up to 40°C in the shade. There are never watering restrictions but, of course, there is little natural water for much of June, July and August.
