Garden Revival: Gardening Expert Melinda Myers Shares Tips for Helping Gardens Recover From Extreme Weather Conditions
Date:5/17/2013

ening and household chores. There will be less water wasted to evaporation and it will save time since the system does the watering for the gardener.

Capture rainwater and use it to water container and in-ground gardens. Rain barrels and cisterns have long been used for this purpose and are experiencing renewed interest. Look for these features when buying or making a rain barrel. Make sure the spigot is located close to the bottom so less water collects and stagnates. Select one that has a screen over the opening to keep out debris. And look for an overflow that directs the water into another barrel or away from the house.

Add a bit of paint to turn the rain barrel into a piece of art. Or tuck it behind some containers, shrubs or a decorative trellis. Just make sure it is easy to access.

Be sure to mulch trees and shrubs with shredded bark or woodchips to conserve moisture, suppress weeds and reduce competition from nearby grass. This will eliminate the need for hand trimming, while protecting trunks and stems from damaging weed whips and mowers.

Invigorate weather worn perennials with compost and an auger bit. Spread an inch of compost over the soil surface. Then use an auger bit, often used for planting bulbs, and drill the compost into the soil in open areas throughout the garden. The compost will move closer to the root zone of the plants and the soil will be aerated with this one activity.

A little advance planning and preparation can reduce the workload, save time and increase gardening enjoyment.
