It’s our birthday month again. We are two years old and this is our 25th edition. What we set out to achieve in May 2014 was to pass on valuable garden knowledge for both the new and experienced gardener, be it amateur or professional, in our Mediterranean climate. Where as some people like to hold on to their tips and wisdom, we like to share and encourage new ideas. We have been very fortunate to have found such a rich and diverse collection of like-minded writers who have become like family to us. We would like to thank them all, as without them, Mediterranean Gardening and Outdoor Living would not be the success it is. From the original edition entitled ‘Algarve Gardening’, our wings have spread throughout Portugal and further into Spain, as we cover the varying climates and changes in plant life in our shared peninsular. We have our own online website, where you can download all the past copies, which we’re pleased to say, have helped gardeners in Greece, U.K., Italy, France, Morocco, USA and even Azerbaijan! What’s next in store you may well ask? Well, in addition to keeping our regular features and getting more people on board, we plan to open up more regions in the Mediterranean and offer some versions in Spanish and Portuguese. We are looking to visit more of our readers gardens and hold meetings and talks throughout the year so you can meet the team and ask questions. A foraging hunt and walk is planned, plus later this year we plan to produce a hardback book with a compilation of all the old features plus some new material, so everything you need will be under one cover. May welcomes in the migrant birds, busy bees and the sounds of delicious scents of the Spring. Perhaps the best month for all green fingers. We say a hearty hello to two new writers to the team; Alan Butler and Zahrah Nasir. Alan is a highly respected expert on aloes and the succulent brigade. He promises to start us off gently, but I expect you to be quite fluent in these genuses after several months access to his vast library of information. Zahrah’s experience teaching permaculture to local farmers in some of world harshest and most dangerous countries, whilst also acting as a front-line war correspondent, puts most of our achievements in the shade. If anyone knows how to grow food with very little resources, it’s her. So without further ado on our birthday month, we are going to test our garden goodies, grab our snips, turn the compost and after all that is done, switch from red to white vino after a hard, yet rewarding, day in the garden.
