Anyone interested in a terrace/pot gardening forum for tips and help and advice. Am new to the gardening game, let alone gardening in pots on scorching terraces and would love to be able to get some help and advice on a forum - might also be one section where snide comments and rows don't materialize!!!

You know the sort of thing - yellowing leaves on a Jasmine, Roses turning brown, watering, fertilizer, etc, etc. None of the books I've got or online forums deal with Spain and its climate.

Perhaps Anna can set up a seperate forum then as Im sure there are loads of people out there who can help or need help.
We've got 90m2 of terrace we are filling with plants and I dont want to throw money down the drain on killing them.
Had same problem and it was too much water, but when you read in the books it tells you they need loads of water, try letting it dry out and when the leaves start to droop a little water it - only in the tray at the bottom if its in a pot.
Ive got yellowing leaves with a Jasmine - ones ok and ones not - different sized pots slightly different positions.

Thanks for that Lilley, yes I think I did water it too much - I read on the internet that they need lots of water and not to dry out - but I'll give it a go and leave it to dry now - thanks for the tip

Hibiscus need a constant damp but well drained enviroment so not advisable to have the pot standing in a tray. Personally I would repot the plant Anita.
I had a couple, planted in the ground but where soil kept drying out, that became totally bereft of foliage .Relocated them and now going great guns.
Hardy plants these.

Hi Everyone

I think a "gardening in Spain" forum of some sort would be fabulous. I am at a stage now where our garden is ready for plants next spring and I really don't have a clue!! I want a couple of palm trees and some wall covering flowers and something pretty to grow up a terrace and some pot plants. We are not there very often so I know I need to put a watering system in. Any help would be very greatly received. Yes PLEASE set one up, I would find it so useful.

Cheers
