It’s raining again! Hooray!
Okay, maybe it’s not a cause for celebration, really… But we are so used to rain in the Puget Sound region that we expect natural sources to keep our gardens hydrated during the summer. This year’s moderate summer heat and extended dryness probably snuck up on most of us.
A gentle reminder this fall that plants can stress easily in hot weather. Think about those that needed extra watering this summer, and about your containers that dried out more than usual… and take note of that for next year!
At PowellsWood, we also pay special fall attention to those beds in the garden that became particularly dry in the summer, and ensure those areas get mulched well in the fall so they will better hold moisture next year.
Enjoy the autumn!This entry was posted on 11/03/2012 in Northwest Gardening Blog by PowellsWood
