Autumn is the ideal time to plant your Mallorca garden!

Planting season is here and we recently spoke with our friends at Charles Marlow in Deia about how to plant in a way that makes your Mallorca garden something special.

Why is now such an important time for a Mallorca garden?

Mediterranean plants are built to survive the harsh summer heat and many of them go partially dormant during the hottest months. The warm autumn rains bring them all back to life and they start up on another growth spurt that continues until the winter cold begins. Irrigation systems help to keep a Mallorca garden looking good during the summer, but even still, the garden plants all visibly perk up with some natural showers. It is obvious which they prefer!
