Turning Up the Water Pressure About Drought
In this issue of Salvia Guru, NPR clarifies confusing questions about what happens for breaking California's tough water regulations that are turning lawns brown. We also link to a report from Colorado's High Country News explaining how a shortage of precipitation may be causing Rufous hummingbirds to face a different penalty -- a progressively declining population.
Another link from the California Native Plant Society explains how to plan a theme garden for a dry landscape. Additional gardening solutions from Flowers by the Sea, which publishes Salvia Guru, include container gardening and planting drought-tolerant milkweeds to attract Monarchs and other butterflies. Finally, The Santa Cruz Sentinel reminds us that the path to successful gardening is lined with plants that are right for your gardening conditions, including drought.
