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

Select plants suited to the growing environment and that includes normal rainfall. Every season is different, but selecting plants suited to the average conditions will minimize the care needed and increase the odds for success. 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.

A properly installed and managed irrigation system will help save water. The convenience makes it easy to water plantings thoroughly, encouraging deep roots, and only when needed. Turn the system on early in the day while tending to other gard
