Reflecting on the Growing Season

With winter now in full swing for most of us, it’s easy to put the garden on the back burner and forget about it until spring. But if you do that, you’re missing one of the best parts of the year! Winter is the perfect time to reflect on the past growing season while it’s still fresh in the mind and write down what went well, what didn’t, and what could be added for next year.

Fall Planting: Drought Tolerant Perennials

Many gardeners live in drought-prone areas where it is necessary to conserve water, which means a lot needs to go into the “planning and organizing” phase of gardening, even before the gloves come on. Other gardeners, in places like the Northeast, may not need to conserve water, but choose to plant drought resistant varieties to help save on their water bill or give themselves less work in the garden. Whatever your reason may be to go drought tolerant, we have several hardy, easy-to-grow perennial varieties that are perfect for almost any garden.
