The Mediterranean climate and the prospect of growing something more exotic than in a northern European garden are only two reasons many people who move to rural Mallorca become keen gardeners.
Yorkshire-born Caroline Fuller is not only an enthusiastic gardener, but also blogs about gardening at her home in the Mallorcan countryside. Caroline also contributes a gardening column (and a pet column) to the island’s English-language newspaper, Majorca Daily Bulletin.
Hear about her life with husband David (known as o/h in her blog), their dogs, and chickens, as she talks about their no-dig lasagne garden, the lessons she’s learnt about gardening in Mallorca, and how a pair of David’s pants revealed something interesting about their soil.

Caroline’s newspaper columns The Potting Shed and Pet Bulletin are published in the weekend editions of www.majorcadailybulletin.com
