An Easy Care Mediterranean Garden Idea

Plant Combinations, Spring Borders, Summer Borders, Fall Borders, Gravel Gardens


Looking good all year long, this Mediterranean garden includes a number of iconic elements of Provencal or Tuscan gardens such as olive trees, lavender cotton (Santolina), thyme (Thymus) or shrubby bindweed (Convolvulus). Most are fragrant, their foliage releasing scent when they are brushed against.

All are water-wise, drought tolerant and require little care.
