Episode 91: Drought-Tolerant Crops

It just about looks like drought is the norm today.  Irrespective of the place you reside—East Coast, West Coast, or anyplace in between—durations of no rain are commonplace. Some gardeners on the market have been coping with droughty situations for many years whereas others are simply beginning to be taught what a “actual” drought-tolerant plant is. After a record-breaking dry spell final summer time (and it seems to be like we’re shaping as much as have a lot of the identical this yr), Steve and Danielle determined to spotlight a few of their favourite vegetation for dry situations. Some are East Coast favorites (in spite of everything, that’s the place we backyard) however others are West Coast stunners and there’s even a Colorado native plant that has confirmed itself helpful in gardens across the nation.
