Now here is a conundrum for everyone. My boss had asked me to post as she is desperate to put more flowers etc in her villa garden. She has a leaky hose system in place but the plants need to tolerate heat and drought conditions with a leaky hose.

 

she wondered about zinnia or dahlia! She visits every 9 weeks but over the hottest period she would be away for 3 months, but has got neighbours that would lightly water. 

 

at the moment she has fruit trees galore, but wants to expand into her beds and terrAcotta pots!  

 

So suggest away !!!

I'm getting excited thinkjng about it. I never thought about the parking etc. I have to admit I find it frustrating when your feet hurt and your tired. I will look at the cost of VIP, but suppose it depends if the extra could buy me something special for my garden!
