Putting mulch around plants can help them during drought conditions. Avoid rock and black bark mulch, as well as black plastic as these hold in the heat. Friable, loose mulch made from ground wood, dried grass, even straw is going to work best. Layer in at least two inches, three to four inches would be even better. Stuart Pettygrove/Courtesy photo
