Time Saving Native Plants January 26, 2009

clock_screen01I could stay in the gardens forever.  But there are a few other things that I do need do sometimes.  Planting a lot of native plants helps me get out of the gardens quicker when I need to.

Once native plants are established, a season or two at most, they can pretty much take care of them selves.  Even vegetables that are suited for your region take less time than those that are not.

A little weed pulling, mulching and composting a couple of times a season and you should be good to go. 

Native plants will certainly cut down on the amount of time you spend watering.  Unless it gets very dry, most natives are okay with what mother nature gives them.   If it does get drier and hotter than normal watering once or twice a week should get them through.

So if time spent in the garden is an issue, then go native.
