If your garden is located in a mild winter region, with a long growing season and almost no winter freeze, where summers are either hot and dry or hot and humid (similar to zone 9 in the US – Central California, parts of Texas and central Florida) you may be interested in some of the ideas we have to share here.

On the other hand – if you’re an arm chair gardener – we invite you to scroll through our photos, check out our herb and craft ideas and just enjoy without having to roll up your sleeves and pull on your work gloves. Click a sign, pick a season…then tour all of our offerings.

“I have never met a gardener I didn’t like. There is a captivating quality about people who devote themselves passionately to creating a beauty born of their own vision and who are willing to harvest their dreams.”

Nancy Lindemayer

“A garden should make you feel you’ve entered privileged space — a place not just set apart but reverberant — and it seems to me that, to achieve this, the gardener must put some kind of twist on the existing landscape, turn its prose into something nearer poetry”

Michael Pollan

“The poetry of earth is never dead.”

_John Keats

Go often to the house of your friend,
for weeds choke up the unused path.

“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy:
They are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” 

_Marcel Proust
