      Summer-Dry Plants and Gardens. Summer-Dry plants is an on-going project to provide gardeners in summer-dry, mediterranean climates authentic photos that encourage sustainable garden practices. We want to change the aesthetic of what we expect to see in a garden photo for summer-dry climates.   Dry spells happen, no matter where you live. But by choosing plants that are less thirsty and more resilient during droughts, your garden will survive Mother Nature’s worst. Make sure whatever plant you fall in love with works in your USDA Hardiness Zone.

      Dry Climates. Dry climates receive very little rainfall. They also have high rates of evaporation. This makes them even drier. Deserts. The driest climates are deserts. Most occur between about 15° and 30° latitude. This is where dry air sinks to the surface in the global circulation cells. Deserts receive less than 25 centimeters (10 inches. Fall gardening where it is cold. Our fall garden is more like a winter garden in warmer areas. We can use many winter gardening tips to grow food till temperature drops to about (C) (0F). Often this will be in late November. See how to plant a Fall Garden in a Northern Climate.

      Gardening is something that is quite enjoyable for many, offering food as payment for all of that hard work and planning. Gardeners in most areas can use the general gardening advice that’s available in such forums as Off The Grid News, but there are some areas in which gardeners need a little bit more information and instance, places where much of the advice is not applicable.   Trevor's rules for dry climate gardening include understanding: The lawn isn't going to be green all summer; That by this time of the year many plants - even hardy ones - will be looking ratty.
