- Our Water Our World – Water Wise Gardening
Here in California, droughts are part of our natural weather cycles. But when drought conditions persist for long periods of time, it can significantly impact plant health in a number of ways. Lack of water limits a plant’s ability to produce food, and stressed plants can release chemicals that can attract pests. Excessive heat can accelerate the reproduction time of pests.
Learn to create a water-wise garden that will look beautiful through the dryer months. Julie Barbour & Suzanne Bontempo from OWOW (Our Water Our World) shares techniques and strategies for water-wise gardening that will help keep your garden healthy and pest-free. This webinar is a must for every gardener!
