As always, Don Shor and Lois Richter start by answering current questions. Then the main portion of this show is especially timely in May 2021 as we review "12 Tips For Low Water Gardening."
What are those 12 tips? 1. Water right. 2. Zone your plants by water need. 3. Water thoroughly. 4. Mulch well, mulch wisely. 5. Water your fruit trees like an orchard! 6. Reduce your lawn area. 7. Maybe get a "Smart timer." 8. Change your type of grass. 9. Rethink your lawn: consider a meadow. 10. Choose plants that use less water. 11. Consider California and southwestern [and other "Mediterranian" climate] native plants. 12. Think local -- use UCD Arboretum resources! Bonus 13th tip: Don't forget succulents!
