è un piacere conoscere il tuo blog, in questo post poi segnali molti link interessanti pe questo periodo, me li leggerò. Io sono romana ma abito a Strasburgo, ho un minuscolo balconcino dove dorrei mettere un po di piante di odori che non mi muoiona durante il freddo inverno, tipo roasmarino, alloro, e cos altro?

Salve Francesca, temo che il rosmarino possa avere problemi con inverni rigidi, consiglio senz altro il timo serpillo, più resistente del timo vulgaris, poi menta e tutte le piante annuali che in autunno muoiono come aneto, coriandolo, basilico di vari tipi. Buona coltivazione!
