Hi everybody.  I apologise for my absence  from this Forum.  I really missed all the great photos and information.  Thank you Hilary for all your posting. They are much appreciated.   What an interesting  garden.  Hopefully we will resume travelling and visiting gardens soon.  The Paliurus spina  grows well in Cyprus.  As children we used to eat the green unripe fruit because  it was crunchy.
I garden in Cyprus, in a flat old farming field, alt. approx. 30 m asl.

BALKAN BOTANICAL GARDEN OF KROUSSIA
ΒΑΛΚΑΝΙΚΟΣ ΒΟΤΑΝΙΚΟΣ ΚΗΠΟΣ ΚΡΟΥΣΣΙΩΝ

When we visited this garden, at the beginning of June, a collection of plants growing in small rock gardens, on what was once the car park, was pointed out to us

The notice board informed us that
The project is co-funded by the EU and national funds of the countries participating in the
Interreg IPA Cross Border Co-operation Programme
“Greece – Republic of North Macedonia
2014-2020”

The notice board also informed us that the project was for
“Protection of plants with conservation priority in the cross-border area “
“Phytodiversity awareness”

The plants are divided into three categories
A NEAR THREATENED
B ENDEMICS NOT YET THREATENED
C RARE – UNCOMMEN

I managed to take photos of fifteen or sixteen plants which were in flower at that time
