Hello desert gardeners!

The heat will be stressing you and your plants, and we are all counting down to the monsoon season. Take care during this time to watch your water intake and stay as cool as possible when spending time outside. Keep a close eye on your plants, and we will all make it through!

Today’s tip

You can use 30-40% shade cloth to give your container plants a bit of a break during the hottest part of the summer. Also check your container plants often--twice a day if possible. If you can, get them away from reflected heat and under a tree. Keep in mind that unglazed clay pots—even the big ones— will lose a lot of moisture during this time.
