About me

I am retired and live with my husband in Spain on the Costa Blanca. I have a small garden with raised beds, Orange and Peach Trees and lots of pots on the terraces.
The sun is extremely fierce and, much as I love them I cannot keep Fuchsias (my favourite plants) Geraniums collapse after a matter of weeks and are attacked by the dreaded Geranium moth.
My climbers are, Bignonia, Jasmine and Clematis. I have a large Solanium shrub, which is doing well.
This year in particular the ants have been a real menace! I am looking for plants that love full sun,dry conditions and are Perennials.
Am I searching for the Holy Grail?
