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.

Garden Club visit - 9 June 2015

I am delighted to announce the venue of our June visit as Cortijo “La Calera”, Los Romanes.

More details about the visit and directions will follow.

La Calera is approximately 20 minutes from Velez Malaga. We would need to allow about 45 minutes journey time and car sharing for this visit for those members without transport.

Tom and I came across the gardens of Stephanie and Terry when we bought some of their plants advertised for sale on Facebook earlier this year on behalf of AAR.

Stephanie takes cuttings from her garden every year and sells them to raise funds for AAR.

What a beautiful garden set amongst natural rocky outcrops, and there's even a cave! Tom and I were so taken with the garden that we asked Stephanie if she would host a future garden club visit.

She has kindly agreed to host June's meeting, on Tuesday 9 June.

Please mark 9 June at 11.00 am in your diaries.

Stephanie and Terry operate a self catering business from their old Spanish farm hamlet.

Their beautifully restored Cortijo situated amid olive groves with views of the unspoilt valleys and mountains now consists of three adjoining properties to rent, the owner’s house, a lagoon shaped swimming pool and wonderful gardens.

Stephanie is a keen gardener and Terry has completed many interesting construction projects, both of which will provide inspiration to club members.

You can find more details about the Cortijo here
