I have been disappointed this year with my runner beans and courgettes mainly because of the work involved of constant watering. It’s a lot to do in a 120ft garden. The bottom third is veg and has 2 fig trees and an olive tree. I’ve decided to have flowers instead of vegetables just for a change. Who out there has any suggestion which flowers would be easy to grow in order to have a bright show.



Do you want annuals or perennials?

Drought tolerant perennials include Rudbeckia hirta, Gaillardia aristata and G. grandiflora, Coreopsis, Penstemon barbatus hybrids, Gaura, Aster x frikartii, and Sundrops (Oenothera missouriensis).
Drought tolerant annuals include Cosmos, Coreopsis tinctoria, Globe Amaranth, xPetchoa hybrids, and Gaillardia pulchella.
