Thanks to Monrovia for sponsoring this series of posts. The opinions stated here are my own.
I normally like to plant any new additions the moment I get them. I find that if I don’t get to it right away it is too easy to procrastinate for even longer periods of time. Of course, a cold has knocked me down the last several days, so these containers have remained n the front porch for far too long. In an effort to make some movement, and share some more information with you, I gathered up the tags from plants to help familiarize myself more with their needs and develop some ideas where I might plant them.
Since both of these plants have low-watering needs, I am going to specifically place them way from the soaker hoses I use for the majority of the garden. Drought-toerant plants don’t like extra water at the wrong times and it can even kill more sensitive plants, especially true California natives. I think I have narrowed down the placement of these plants to 2 basic areas. it should be a quick task to get them in the ground. I’ll make a video when I do that so you can see the condition of the plant and the root ball so see the type of plants you might get from Monrovia and your local garden store.
I do like the design of these plants tags. Rather than just simply names of the plants, Monrovia provides good information on hardiness, bloom time, water needs and planting instruction. This isn’t always the case and it is greatly appreciated. I want to give my plants the best chances for success and more information is always better.
