SPANISH GARDENS: GARDENS OF ANDALUCIA

SPANISH GARDENS: GARDENS OF ANDALUCIA | Sustainable & Eco-tourism | Scoop.it

Some gardeners admit to me that they are overwhelmed by the grandeur of the Spanish gardens they visit. They wonder how they can create a garden in Spain as good as those I show them on my personalised tours. The answer is that you cannot hope to compete with long established gardens but you can learn from them. Carry a notepad and pen with you. Write down the Latin names of those plants and flowers you admire. Do not try to be too ambitious. A garden to impress your friends and enjoy yourself can be constructed without spending a fortune.
