Desert update: In our previous newsletter we wrote about interesting new plants we had planted in the desert plot.

After ensuring sufficient water, good weeding, stone cover surrounding the plants and careful observation, the young seedlings have grown and some of them are already in flower: Salvia aegyptiaca, Tephrosia apollinea, Farsetia aegyptia, Moricandia nitens, Pituranthos tortuosus, Pituranthos triradiatus and Fagonia mollis.

News from the construction site: The construction of the new entrance plaza continues. In the last two months, new electricity cables and water pipes have been installed and stone terraces embracing new flowerbeds have been built, along which future visitors will enter the Mediterranean part of the ecological garden.
