On the Dry Side
The Okanagan Xeriscape Association Blog
How can we keep vital pollinators thriving with your plant choices in the spring and fall?
Consider allocating a portion of your garden to native Okanagan plants which thrive in our semi-arid valley.
Basic pruning requires little more than the removal of dead, damaged, or diseased wood to maintain the health of the plant.
There are no absolutes in gardening. What I consider in some situations to be ‘garden thugs’ are ‘landscape heroes’ under other conditions.
Leave the leaves! Don’t stress over fall garden clean-up. Just leave the leaves on the ground where they fall.
Fall is the ideal time to get a jump on next year’s garden by planting a pop of colour in the spring garden.
Welcome to the Blog
Our blog is an opportunity to share information on how to garden with nature while conserving water in the Okanagan Valley.
Among other contributors, it includes “Gardening with Nature” articles by our Executive Director, Sigrie Kendrick, as well as articles by co-founder Gwen Steele.
As a group blog and forum, we welcome your contributions and comments and hope to create a blossoming community of xeriscape gardeners as well as a valuable archive of articles.
