Quote of the Month

There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling.

Viveros Florena

We now have stocks of the lovely snail vine, phaserolus caracalla
a real beauty of a climber and scented too!
 





And if you're pestered by cats, dogs, rabbits, squirrels or even deer on your plants, we have the answer - the Scaredy Cat Plant or Piss Off Plant, coleus canina. 

It exudes a smell that your four-footed enemies utterly detest yet is only mildly offensive to us when the leaves are rubbed.  
 A pretty little succulent with blue flowers that loves the sun, you can propagate from it easily and spread it around your special
plants to protect them.

And for those of you who live in the Costa Blanca area, don't forget that we will be at the Homes, Gardens and Lifestyle Show at Algorfa 29th and 30th May.
Hope to see you there!
