Dozen for Diana 1
If you have been in your present garden for years, look back. What you tried to plant, then you met that nice lady on the corner, with the beautiful garden ... Imagine a courtyard with a tree to sit under and a little wildlife pond.
For Diana's Dozen my chosen plant is happy with our mediterranean climate, wet winter, and LONG HOT summer. I prefer indigenous/native South African fynbos. They must have something special, wild life friendly, flowers to pick, fragrance or interesting foliage.
My first Dozen was plants I loved, before I understood the Porterville garden.
