DROUGHT-PROOF GARDENING Wednesday, May 18 5:00 - 6:00 PM

Here in California, droughts are part of our natural weather cycles. But when drought conditions persist for long periods of time, plant health is significantly impacted. Lack of water limits a plant’s ability to produce food, and stressed plants can release chemicals that attract pests. Learn to create a water-efficient garden that looks beautiful through the dry months. This webinar is a must for every gardener! Register for this class.
