Be aware of the hardiness zone of your area before you decide to buy plants. Some plants might not survive over winter!
Spain lies in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 8-10. It is one of the most climatically diverse countries in Europe with its three different climate zones. It enjoys a Mediterranean climate with dry, warm summers and moderate, wet winters; a maritime climate, with cool summers and mild winters (Basque Country); and a warm temperate moist forest climate, with wet winters, dry summers (western and northwestern coastal areas).
