    adding plants

    Let us know where you live (what zone) and perhaps we can give you some ideas! :)

    Hi Lara,
    It is difficult to determine your hardiness zone from here in the US. I tried to find a zone map for New Zealand that would correspond with the US, but didn't have any luck. Take a look at these temps for Europe and try and let us know what your zone would be here in the US. With the plants that you already have, I suspect that you are 6, 7 or 8. Lilacs and delphiniums like the cold. I once saw a lovely program on your botanical gardens but can't remember the corresponding USDA zone.

    Here's some sites for New Zealand and Australia that might be helpful.
