Winter may be confusing us with a very wet December followed by a very dry January and February, but in Yolo County, a hot and dry summer is guaranteed.
On Saturday, March 2, Yolo County Master Gardeners will conduct two free workshops at Central Park Gardens at the corner of Third and B streets, opposite the Davis Farmers Market, that will cover a wide range of planting ideas for a waterwise, drought-tolerant garden.
From 9:30 to 10:30 a.m., Janet Thatcher will have a variety of samples of succulents and cacti that will endure our hot summers. Methods of planting and the care and maintenance of these attractive, but low-care, plants will be demonstrated.
From 11 a.m. to noon, Ann Daniel will introduce workshop attendees to a variety of easy-to-maintain, drought-tolerant California natives that would add seasonal color to any garden. California natives can fill any niche in a garden as they vary from ground covers to more substantial bushes and trees.
