eBooks and iBooks - a photographic journey of growing a mediterranean garden.

A Pelion Garden
Olivia Elliot spent ten years working on her Pelion garden in mediterranean Greece, creating a micro-climate in which the plants could thrive. Her approach to gardening is fun and experimental, and her successes and failures are equally enjoyable to read. Everything you need to know about how to care for each plant is clearly listed, along with information about its eco friendliness and fun facts about its historical uses. The beautiful photographs help the novice to identify each plant by leaf and flower, and understand how and where the plant can contribute to a garden. The plants featured in this book often grow equally well in temperate climates so long as they are given a warm sheltered position, and the more tender varieties are overwintered indoors or in a greenhouse. 

A Pelion Garden is a delight to read for gardeners everywhere, and an ideal reference book. Why not create a Pelion Garden paradise in your own garden!

A must for someone gardening in Greece
By Pmf on 2 Nov. 2014

Really a super book with relevant technical info and personal anecdotal experiences had with the plants, the sort of insights a RHS or UK written book on Mediterranean gardening never would elicit. Will apply Olivia's wisdom to my garden in Crete. Full of nice photos.

An enjoyable ad informative read.

We have purchased a house in Crete with a large, neglected garden. This book has provided enough information and inspiration for me to believe that we will eventually be able to transform it into a productive and beautiful space.
