Winter can be shrugged off, as the sun lifts your spirits as well as making the plants grow, and with the extra hour of daylight from the end of the month, there is even more time to spend out in the garden. Blossom abounds on prunus trees and what a joy to see all the lovely flowers that bring us fruits and nuts later on, whilst Ornithogalum arabicum and Gladiolus byzantinus will be appearing everywhere in the countryside.
- Gardening in Cyprus
Having a garden in Cyprus is quite different to anywhere else in the world. Cyprus enjoys year round sun with very high summer temperatures and little or no rainfall and what there is comes between November and March.
Snow falls on the Troodos Mountains during the winter and frost can be experienced at elevations of around 300 m and above. Soils can be red clay or sandy and free draining and there is no great depth of soil anywhere so gardening is a real challenge! My name is Patricia Jordan and I lived and gardened in various countries before coming to Cyprus. I would like to share my gardening experiences with you through these pages. Each month there are suggestions of what to do in the garden and which plants are available locally.
Gardening should be a relaxing and enjoyable hobby and so if you have any problems do contact me and I look forward to helping you out.
