Kelowna Capital News – June 6, 2018
I invite you to join me on Thursday, Aug. 2 at 7 p.m. for a free presentation at the unH2O Xeriscape Demonstration Garden, 4075 Gordon Drive in front of the H2O Aquatic Centre.
I’ll be talking about the plants that are in bloom, characteristics of drought tolerant plants, and answering questions about water-wise gardening.
The garden is comprised of six theme gardens to help gardeners select water-wise groupings of plants that appeal to them.
The Native Garden contains extremely drought tolerant plants, watered in the first year only.
The Mediterranean Garden and Rock/gravel Garden thrive with a small amount of supplemental water during prolonged dry spells.
The Butterfly Garden and the Ornamental Grass Garden are irrigated weekly during hot, dry weather.
