It can be about guilds or seed exchanges or any specific sun, wind, frost or drought concern....

Where could we talk about similar things apart from living in the same continent?
There is already a geographical forum, but it is not suitable for what I wish to talk about.

Anyone can add his own ideas about it, here is my concern:
I would like to talk about subject that interest people who live in subtropical dry climate.
I am frost free, some might be nearly frost-free...
Some might be frost free with wet tropical climates....

I already know I would love to join people from California, south Africa, some places in Australia...
(especially western places from these 2 countries)
Some people from Florida might have the same concern though they have more rain...
And also from Mexico and some places of Chile!
May be from Lebanon ans Israel?

Then it would be easier to talk about guilds and about trying some new plants from all over the world.
I find it difficult to start growing
- Mesquite from California,
- sandalwood from Australia (and other bushfood),
- Marula from South Africa
- and Ramon from Mexico to central America...
And all people having a Mediterranean dry subtropical climate would love to know more about these plants!

Of course we would still have climate differences, and that would be great to explore what are the limits of some plants...
When the differences are small, then it is more easy to discuss about them.
