Gardening Tip of the Day

  • If you live in a drought prone area, keep the following annuals in mind when ordering seed. After the first 3 or 4 weeks in the garden, they require only minimal water to bloom.

    • Cosmos
    • Gaillardia
    • Gazania
    • Four o’Clocks
    • Nierembergia
    • Phlox
    • Portulaca
    • Tithonia
    • Verbena
    • Vinca

    There are several things you can do to improve the water retentive properties of your soil. Add compost, use water retentive crystals (i.e. Soil Moist, TerraSorb), and mulch the beds.
