Drought and limited water resources have become a challenge for gardeners throughout the country. However, this does not mean that gardeners with limited water resources cannot enjoy beautiful blooms â€“ It is all about choosing the right plants. Fall-Planted Bulbs such as Daffodils, Tulips, Allium, Crocus, and more are extremely drought-tolerant and only require initial watering when they are first planted, producing gorgeous blooms come spring.
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 doesnâ€™t matter what type of gardener you are â€“ There are many seed, bulb, and perennial plant choices that will tolerate dry conditions and provide a long-lasting, vibrant show of color!

Most gardeners I know don’t pay a lot of attention to trends. They know what they like and won’t rush out to buy a plant or gadget just because some so-called expert raves about it. Still, it can be amusing to have a look at what’s hot, and what’s not.
