Gardens love the Moist Coastal Towns

When the weather doesn't meet the exact needs of plants, then a gardener needs to improvise to tend them.  A full time gardener needs to learn savvy techniques when an area has fluctuating climate in one season. Some places that receive ample rainfall can get far less than the normal precipitation. For instance, buy San Diego drought tolerant plants and let go of any worry about rainfall or lack of it.You can adjust your watering habits according to the directions on the transplants or the seeds. Some of my favorite drought resistant plants are Artemesia and Manzanita.

Plants of any genus or species require more than planting, weeding and water. They need good soil full of nutrients to feed from the roots through all the rhizomes of the plant. Much soil has been lost due to erosion and deforestation in some areas of the country. Coastal cities are prone to this condition due to many factors so if you are gardening in California, be sure to buy enough topsoil San Diego and prepare the garden beds well before planting. Gather a little knowledge about soil types and acidity before you make a big purchase. Ask questions at your local garden center San Diego for every purchase. They might even have information brochures to help you get the most out of your garden this year.
