Consuelo Marin gives us the opportunity to view her splendid garden in Chile.
"We have a place in the mountains 2 hours from Santiago, Chile. To grow a garden there has certainly been a challenge. Besides the poor soil, cold winters and very hot summers, we have a lot of rabbits … but we made it, we thrived a very rustic garden, we took advantage of the native plants we have there, a small area of grass, a couple of fruit trees, a lot of gravel, stone walls and plants with low water requirements and a natural pond for a relaxing evening. Now, spring is coming in our area and we are looking forward to see the flowers bloom, roses, calendulas, lavenders, abelias, crocosmias."
