Gardening_in_Crete and Local Flora and Fauna Gardening_in_Crete and Local Flora and Fauna
Meet fellow expats at gardening clubs. Crete's climate is North African along the coastal South of Crete; true Mediterranean along the North coast with cold winter winds and Alpine on central Peaks. Crete is an easy place to grow your own veggies and flowers, plus citrus, olives and fig trees; apples and pears on the plateaus.
