It has been a long, dry summer and our gardens have suffered. Maybe now is the time to re-think our plantings. All our independent nurseries sell a great selection of drought tolerant plants. They can help you make selections that would be suitable for you garden. You can also find great ideas for your garden by reading any one of the 60 or more garden blogs written by Austin Garden Bloggers.
Maybe you have a family birthday in the future or are thinking about Holiday gifts. What about a hummingbird feeder for your children or a birdbath to welcome feathered friends into the garden. You will find any number of great gift ideas at your local nursery.
Disappearing fountains make great bird baths.
With our eyes tuned constantly to the weather how about a weather station. Lots of great products as well as great plant selections.
