June is usually the beginning of our “dry” season. But with record rainfall and cool temperatures throughout spring and now into June, our gardens are anything but dry. The greater concern now is what happens when all that storm water leaves your property.
Most of the rhododendrons you see in Seattle are hybrids. They are the result of cross-breeding done to produce plants of certain sizes, with certain leaf textures and flower colors.
Our first big outing was to the West Seattle Nursery and our appointments, usually spaced two weeks apart, kept us on track with our gardening projects and also gave us something positive to look forward to. Thank you for that!
We’re continuing our series of stories submitted by our customers about their gardening adventures this year. This week, we are featuring vegetable gardeners.
