THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN number 3, WINTER 1995/6

MEDITORIAL BY Caroline Harbouri and Derek Toms

A lot is said in this article about the use of grasses in Mediterranean gardens.
Not having a garden, I don’t have an opinion about grasses but I know that some variety of Stipa has become very popular here

There is a strip of Stipa plants at the windswept, next to the sea, summer coffee shop which opened last summer and has reopened this summer.
The first photo is from November last year and the second photo July this year.
I don’t think the plants got much attention during the winter

No garden but two balconies, one facing south and the other north.
Most of my plants are succulents which need little care

Some Thoughts About Heidi Gildemeister’s Suggestion of a Mediterranean Plant Finder
By Hugo Latymer

In this article there is a plan of how to contribute to a Plant Finder.
In the list of plants there are
Hoya Carnosa
Lantana, yellow, prostrate
and Aptenia lancifolia 

I Just so happen to have photos of these three plants. Yellow, prostrate Lantana has been planted in the newly revamped town square and down the middle of the main street
Hoya carnosa grows outside the front door and Aptenia turns up all over the place in the pots on our balcony

Hilary, I love the first two flowers but I think the yellow could have been made more inviting for me with a touch of lilac or purple, 
I garden in Cyprus, in a flat old farming field, alt. approx. 30 m asl.

Many yellow flowers have been planted in the revamped square
Too many in my opinion

Time for a little guerrilla gardening, Hilary? A few seed bombs perhaps?
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.

ROSES THAT DO WELL by Marjorie Holmes

I don’t have many photos of named roses but I do have several of New Dawn

I quote from this article
“New Dawn is another climber/ rambler which never fails, and a consistent flowerer.”

…AND USEFUL AT HOME by Megan Toms

This article is all about
Salvia officinalis, Sage, Φασκόμηλο

A very popular herb here in Greece. If you don’t have a plant in your garden packets of dried leaves are readily available in greengrocer’s and supermarkets

Since we didn’t have any sage in the house, we acquired some from the Greengrocer’s
Now to make the tea

SUNSHINE ON A STEM by Tom Wellsted

The Mexican tulip poppy, Hunnemannia fumariifolia

This article really stumped me as there are no references anywhere else in THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN and no drawing of the plant

There are plenty of photos on the internet for anyone interest is seeing what this flower looks like
