Drought Tolerant Plants California & Other Dry States Need

This is our fortieth issue. Hurrah! We're also getting close to our one-year anniversary, which will be in late April. Every tenth publication, we report on at least 10 links that attracted the most attention in the previous nine issues.

In the thirtieth issue, we noticed that readers had been focused on articles about pollinators. That made sense, because the fall migration season had recently ended. Now, as we begin the spring growing season, the emphasis seems to be on getting out into the Salvia garden and planting low water flowers.

Unless you are a first-time visitor or new subscriber, you likely remember that Salvia Guru is a publication of Flowers by the Sea Farm and Online Nursery, which is located in California's Mendocino County quite a ways north of San Francisco.

Although this is an extremely busy time of year for FBTS, we are participating in the San Francisco Flower and Garden Show March 16 to 20 at the San Mateo Events Center. FBTS co-owner and chief of everything (except chief mouser Felix the cat, pictured above) presented a "waterwise garden" mini-course on "The World of Salvias." So interest is increasing in the Salvia genus and its many species of drought-resistant flowers.

If you enjoy easy grow perennials and annuals, wildlife garden design, native plant gardening and finding new or favorite flowering sage plants, FBTS is one on the best online plant nurseries for you.

To all who visit, thanks for stopping by. To those who are subscribers, we appreciate your support. Please pass along the word about our free subscriptions and share Felix's handsome portrait. Photo credit: FBTS.
