  Plantas de terra seca - Dry land plants
Vivieros Jardimseco in the Asseca valley, Tavira

Jardimseco is a small nursery in the East Algarve specialising in plants for dry mediterranean gardens. Here we propagate and grow our own stock in conditions they are likely to endure when they are planted out.

Many years of practical experience and experimentation have taught us what will and will not grow in these varied and sometimes harsh conditions.

We have no retail outlets or garden center. 

We do not produce large numbers of any species, just enough for our clients needs.  You can order the plants you need, and we’ll have them ready at the best time for planting.

Our plants are generally pretty tough and need little water once established. We think it takes two years to get a plant fully established, and during that time you will have to water when the plant needs it. So much depends on the depth and quality of your soil, as well as the plants exposure to the sun and wind.
