US (CA): Village Nurseries urges consumers to install low-water-use plants this fall to prepare for next summer
Weather experts predict the current four-year drought will continue next summer despite optimistic projections of increased rain patterns this winter caused by a strong El Niño ocean current.
To prepare for next year, Village Nurseries recommends planting low-water-use, low-maintenance plant materials this fall. A typical fall in California has warm days and cool evenings that make conditions ideal for encouraging new roots to dig deeper into the soil. Once the roots are well established, these hardy selections will need less water to survive next spring and summer.
“We’ve earned a reputation as one of the region’s leading wholesale nurseries in offering low-water-use plant material,” said David House, CEO of Village Nurseries. “Currently, about 70 percent of what we grow performs well with less water once established. Moreover, we offer a wide range of plant materials—including unique and patented plants you can’t find from most wholesale nurseries. Many of these selections are from respected growers and breeders such as Monrovia www.monrovia.com, Anthony Tesselaar Plants www.tesselaar.com, Plant Haven www.planthaven.com and Sunset Western Garden Collection www.sunsetwesterngardencollection.com.”
Suggested low-water-use plantings for fall
A listing of suggested plant selections appears below. More detailed information about each can be found in Village Nurseries’ extensive low water use plant library at www.villagenurseries.com.
Registered customers can also take advantage of the website’s Wish List: a major time saver that allows landscape architects and designers to show their customers the plants they’ve selected—along with photos and descriptions—without having to bring dozens of samples or physically taking customers to the nursery.
