Consider some indoor gardening to keep cool! In most of the Southwest, it’s just downright HOT right now. So how about working on that terrarium that has been collecting dust, or giving your air plants (Tillandsia spp., Zones 10–12) a nice bath?
Spot watering can be an essential technique if you like to mix and match succulents, thirsty annuals, and perennials in your containers like we do. This is an easy way to control the amount of water that each plant is receiving.
Continue to provide additional shade to prevent sunburn for newly planted succulents and perennials, and remember to water regularly throughout this month.
