seeds for drought resistant meditteranean plants

Posted: 19/10/2013 at 15:54

Hi Gardening Granny.  I'm over in the Alpes Maritimes Department, with the same weather as you.  I have salvias in my garden but I don't find them particularly drought resistant - unlike lavender and rosemary!  I'm always on the lookout for really drought resistant plants as I don't like to water the garden - can I ask what do you have in your garden that's particularly tough? Thanks

Thanks for the replies.  Nutcutlet, it looks as though it may be Lavandula pinnata but it has no scent at all.  In any case, it's a great plant for my garden!

Hi All.  I'm wondering if anyone can identify this plant, please.  The leaves looks like an anthemis but it has a different growth habit and very different flowers.  Thanks.

I see you've got an umbrella tree growing in the same pot.

Where are Gazania seeds ?

Hi Gary.  I try to overwinter as many plants as I can as I am not very disciplined trying to grow new ones from seed!  I have a large cellar with windows so I've got plenty of space.  Maybe I'll try growing gazania from seed next Spring - just to see if I can do it!

My cuttings!

Lilylouise - your garden is an inspiration and I marvel at your dedication! I would like to ask a question about how you pot up your cuttings.  I always put cuttings around the edge of pots and this works quite well.  I notice, though, that you use modular trays and put the cuttings into the middle of each module.  Is this a more reliable method?

Have you tried keeping the original plants?  I have some yellow ones I've had for about 3 or 4 years.  I keep them in pots and overwinter them near the window in a cool, frost free cellar.

It sounds like sawfly caterpillars.

What's the weather like in your area?

Gold1locks - maybe it's because the white ones are much easier to see in the dark!
