But it is still amazing that they have managed to create such a beautiful, luxuriant garden in effectively three growing seasons.

This writer is a particular fan of echeviera in pots, hence this photo of the Tekin’s display.

This visually interesting ‘blue’ succulent is maintenance free and makes new plants all the time.

In summer it puts up stems with pretty small pink and lemon flowers.  The only job you ever have to do is re-pot every few years, removing all the ‘babies’ – which your friends will always take for their own gardens/pots.

Another lovely idea in the Tekin’s garden is the use of globe artichokes.

Whilst they are simply a vegetable plant to the Turks, they are also a wonderful structural plant to use in beds with bedding or ground cover to give height to a display.

And the artichokes themselves are a tasty bonus.
