      • Gardening in Crete :: From Succulents to other Mediterranean plants
      • From growing succulents to how to create raised garden beds and the challenges of fragrant rose gardening, raising olives and planning for plants and trees that fit the Mediterranean climate.  Horticulaturists and family hobbyists enjoy the climate challenges at sea level,  very hot and dry along the South coast akin to North Africa; then along the Northern Coast lowlands with colder winter winds and the more fickle  weather in the interior mountain ranges - Dikti (Lassithi), the Ida - Psiloritis (Heraklion-Rethymnon) then the White Mountains (Lefka Ori) in Chania. #Crete all over while challenging is essentially easy place to grow your own veggies and flowers, plus Med staples such as citrus, olives and fig trees; with apples and pears on the plateaus. Check out fellow expats at  local gardening clubs.
