Drought taking a toll.
I’ve been posting pics of the potted plants..but the water bill is getting up there and so now the in ground plants are on there own the next two months.
Only a few shade plants in ground will get the minimum needed to get them to November rains- earlier would be nice.
I have to wonder how others are managing their valued collection all over the state?- there is a strong silence about who’s doing what with big collections and water.
Its making me think that a hobby I read decades ago was one that only asked for one of our cheapest “commodities,water” to make it popular. That’s not now.
The last time I dropped in at a nursery, there were large empty areas of plants. Walmart has closed its plant section- all the garden tools and what have you are gone.
Gas prices are way down— water is way up. A Crazy world.
