Ideal plants for Drought conditions
With our increasingly hot summers drought-resistant plants are becoming particularly useful for gardeners. Many plants around the world are naturally adapted to growing in dry conditions.
You can often tell if a plant is adapted to growing in these conditions because their leaves are waxy, succulent, hairy, sticky, small, needle-like, scented or silver in colour.
If these plants are well looked after in their first season they will be very forgiving of dry conditions in future years.
Even when the rain stops, these drought-tolerant plants prove that the show must go on. They’re sure to survive dry conditions while adding distinctive color and texture to your garden.
Below are the best 7 draught tolerant plants with zero maintenance :
### 1. Jade Plant
### 2. Spider Plant
Recommended Planters : Planters by Size
Choose planters according to size required for your plants for various purposes and locations.
Buy ready to use nutrient rich soil:
In general use a soil-based compost placed over a generous layer of drainage material such as earthenware crocks, pebbles or gravel. Water and feed regularly, especially while plants are bearing flowers and fruit, when a high-potash fertilizer is recommended.
Buy Decorative Pebbles :
Decorate planters or garden landscapes with these decorative pebbles :
Using pebbles in a garden brings different colours and textures to the garden. Pebbles can also fill up otherwise empty space in the garden, leaving a visual that might be considered more interesting and aesthetic than simple dirt, soil or mulch.
