Hi

For all members in Southern Europe or any other Subtropical climate around the world you might be interested in my website with information on growing organic fruit, veg, herbs and edible flowers in Cyprus. Also included are planting guides, organic pest control, frugal gardening tips, how to store and preserve produce and a recipes page.

The link is http://sites.google.com/site/cyprusgardener

Happy reading

Just in case anybody is interested, the subtropics are defined by Wiki as -

A subtropical region should have at least eight months with a mean temperature of 10 °C (50.0 °F) or above. The subtropics are the geographical and climatical zone of the Earth immediately north and south of the tropical zone, which is bounded by the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn, at latitudes 23.5°N and 23.5°S. The term "subtropical" describes the climatic region found adjacent to the tropics, usually between 20 and 40 degrees of latitude in both hemispheres.

European Union: Inland areas around the Mediterranean Sea including a major part of the Iberian Peninsula, Apennine Peninsula and Balkan Peninsula. Major metropolises (urban area of range from 2.4 to 5.4 million people): Lisbon; Barcelona; Madrid; Rome; Naples; Milan; Athens. Some examples of other larger cities (urban area above 0.5 million people): Malaga; Valencia; Porto; Marseilles; Nice. Other places: Malta and Gibraltar with English as official language.
Georgia: Batumi.

I think Odsox would be amused to know he lives in a sub tropical region. :lol: :lol: :lol: Over 10C for 8 months of the year is most of non continental climate Europe isn't it? :lol: I define sub tropical as not having frosts and Mediterranean climate is mostly definitately not sub tropical!! It can be absolutely bloody freezing in winter, even right on the coast.

We have the occasional frost in Cyprus but it's still subtropical. Have just returned to the UK for a short period it's bloody freezing.
