It's possible to have a garden that does not need watering. The plants we have chosen for you can withstand summer drought.
These plants are often from a Mediterranean environment, but are nonetheless quite hardy. They enjoy sunshine and soft, permeable soil.
A scent of Mediterranean scrubland in my garden! Thyme, lavender and oregano will all grow well and have evolved to survive drought.
Grasses also have their place in a dry garden. Stipa, Festuca, Sesleria, Muhlenbergia, Eragrostis can make a garden bright and light.
