Spraying w/ seaweed.
August in Central Texas usually means drought.Up until this year I struggled to keep my plants happy. This spring I finally got smart and listened to my local organic nursery. They had been trying to sell me liquid seaweed every time I made a purchase. I finally gave in and started using it this spring. Every couple of weeks I applied it to the foliage of my plants as directed, alternating every other week with fish emulsion. The results have been outstanding. Yesterday evening I went to take a look at the gardens I had unwantingly neglected for the last couple of weeks. I was amazed to see all of my plants looking strong and healthy. Some of them were even putting on new growth. I didn't see any drooping leaves or dead plants. This has been the most succesful summer I've had w/ my plants.I've learned alot since my start in gardening 6 years ago. I learned to use alot of mulch and to buy native plants. Just thought I would share some tips that help me to survive the drought. :)
