#Gardening_in_Crete and Local Flora and Fauna
#Gardening_in_Crete and Local Flora and Fauna
There are several gardening clubs for the ex-pats in Crete that meet regularly, usually once a month. Crete's climate is varied from the North African climate of the coastal South of Crete to true Mediterranean variety on the North coast with cold winter winds. Crete is a great place to grow your own veggies and flowers, especially Roses. Many varieties of fruit tress do well from deciduous at higher altitude tofigs and citrus (lemon, orange, mandarin, grapefruit) at lower levels.

Things to do
While Spinalonga and Knossos are the leading places to go and see, Crete tourism is changing rapidly. If you find there is a new attraction, let us know about it. I notice more and more places of interest - such as recreating traditional Cretan houses. More wineries are having tasting sessions, then there are Cretan cookery lessons, bird watching trips, hiking trails, cycling races and eco-tourist happenings, the animal park in Neapolis etc etc. Reviews of current visitor attractions are welcome.
