Understanding Drought Tolerant Gardens Recap
On Sunday, Sept. 24th , experienced gardeners, along with beginners, gathered at the new drought-tolerant garden by the Woodland Library in Los Altos.
This garden is a Girl Scout Gold Award project created by Alyssa Robbins in partnership with GreenTown Los Altos, the City of Los Altos, Cal Water and Bay Maples Landscaping.
At the event, expert horticulturist Jeffrey Caldwell answered gardeners’ questions ranging from “How much mulch is ideal?” to “What are recommended soil amendments?” among other topics of interest to all.
We learned how to choose plants from a nursery, how roots effect plant growth and much more. A pruning demonstration and garden walk-and-talk were highlights of the program.
Many thanks to Jeffrey Caldwell for sharing his expertise.
