July Monthly Inspiration

Six weeks without rain at the nursery in March and April prompted us to think about and feature a few genuinely drought resistant plants you could consider growing in your garden as we all try to adapt to promised warmer and hotter summers. It will now probably turn into the wettest July on record following the record May rainfall for many counties but never mind!

Our suggestions for drier conditions are as follows:

Callistemon rigidus and other bottlebrushes
These thrive in the hottest, driest, sun drenched borders and can be baked in pots with relatively little watering. The best show of flowers in July or August will come after a really dry summer the previous year. Australian natives which are perfectly hardy in coastal and seaside locations.
