The collection place will be the Biological Station of La Oliva, located in Montaña de la Arena street, number 52, in La Oliva, always on the date and time assigned and following the rules of safety and hygiene (wear a mask, keep your distance of hygiene and hygiene of hands).

I've been trying to find out what some of the new additions to the standard offering are. I'll post as I discover!

Tedera: plant from the legume family, used in some countries such as Australia as animal fodder. Drought resistant, flower may be anywhere between white, blue, mauve. Plant smells of bitumen when crushed!

Vinagrera (Cruet in the translation!)

Canary Island sorrel. Rumex Lanaria.

The Sorrel or Vinagrera is a medicinal herb found in Tenerife and all the other Canary Islands. This endemic plant gets its Spanish name from its acidic taste like vinegar.

I think that is all the new offerings, the others are the ones that are offered most years. I only want 2 or 3 Drago this year so if anyone is not on the island at the moment and wants some plants I'm quite happy to order, collect and babysit on your behalf - let me know! First come …..

I'm sure someone was after some Especiero (spice rack in the translation!) a while back but I can't remember who.

Note to self - set reminder for Monday to place order!
