Background

organic gardener Mallorca

I was raised raising seedlings and grew up growing cuttings and harvesting fruit, in fews or many, veggies or ornamentals, in open ground, baskets or pots, caring for lawns, large trees or delicate flowers and green moss alike. Not to mention insects and green ponds.

With my grandfather I used to order a wide range of winter bulbs from catalogues and with my dad I collected plants from the wild. He was a keen gardener and a good parent who stood back to let me roam free with rich African flora.

Learning about the natural world never ends. Germination of many types of seeds, some differences between male and female, juvenile and adult, peeling prickly pears without getting thorns, growing apple and orange, tobacco, cape gooseberries, mulberries and sweet strawberries, walnuts, peanuts, macadamias, loquat, pomegranates, granadillas, mangoes, avocados, lychees (Litchy chinenses), common and Latin names, the antidote to a sting from the Phoenix canariensis, tomatoes and French runner beans. The list is endless.

I had become a gardener in every sense of the word and Plants had become not only my companions but also my teachers and my guides.

Let me introduce you.
