But for further inspiration, I'm ensconced at The Conservatory nursery on Unley Road, dreaming of spring.
We have a Mediterranean climate on the Adelaide plains, giving us a huge selection of plants we can grow in our gardens. We have cold winters, hot summers and mild springs and autumns. While in the cooler climate regions of the Adelaide hills where they have really cold winters and mild summers, azaleas, camellias and rhododendrons thrive.
I like to plant out pansies in pots to give my garden a bit of colour in the winter.

An orchard on the kitchen bench brightens up the room in contrast to the grey day outside.
