June already and a hot month here in Cyprus. The gardens are still looking good despite the heat, but will need some daily care to keep them so. Remember your hanging baskets and planters as the temperatures rise. These plants are totally dependent on you for their sustenance and need extra care during these next hot months in order to delight you.
- 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.
