Garden Revival: Gardening Expert Melinda Myers Shares Tips for Helping Gardens Recover From Extreme Weather Conditions

Roses, coneflowers, sedums and zinnias are just a few drought-tolerant plants. Elderberry, ligularia, Siberian iris and marsh marigold are a few moisture tolerant plants.

Be prepared for the worst case scenario. Install an irrigation system, such as the Snip-n-drip soaker system, in the garden. It allows gardeners to apply water directly to the soil alongside plants. This means less water wasted to evaporation, wind and overhead watering. It will also reduce the risk of disease by keeping water off the plant leaves.
