Beat The Heat!

Or, at least manage the heat. We have been getting calls from gardeners across the country who are worried about their gardens in this severe heat. There are several steps you can take during hotter months to help keep your plants healthy and several ways to plan ahead for next summer by planting wildflower and perennial plants that are drought-tolerant.

Rockin’ Out: Building a Rock Garden

Do you have a sloped or awkward piece of land that you are having trouble planting? Rock Gardens not only provide a low-maintenance, long-lasting solution to those hard-to-plant places, but are aesthetically pleasing by contrasting rough, jagged rocks with delicate, gorgeous blooms. They are actually quite simple to create and once complete, the rewards of the Rock Garden will pay for the effort ten times over.

Can’t Water?

There are many reasons why gardeners are unable to water their plants as frequently as they would like; there could be water restrictions in their region, the garden plot could be hard to reach, or they are working on conservation and wanting to garden simply by the means of Mother Nature. It doesn’t matter what type of gardener you are – There are many seed, bulb, and perennial plant choices that will tolerate dry conditions and provide a long-lasting, vibrant show of color!

Drought-Tolerant Perennials for Low-Maintenance Landscapes

We gardeners tend to be particularly tuned into the weather, and although we can’t control how much it rains or how cold it gets, we can choose plants that tolerate challenging conditions. And one of the biggest weather challenges is drought. Fortunately, there are drought-tolerant species that require little or no supplemental water once established.
