shade idea for small plants
This is very simple, but with this sun and heat I am even starting to lose geraniums. Yesterday I noticed that one plant in full sun looked fine -- and it has partial shade from a little wind spinner. So last evening I moved my spinners & garden ornaments to shade other plants. I may even buy more at Dollar Tree then throw them away when this heat slows down.
In March I put a huge potted gardenia in back of thin bamboo thinking it would die in the full afternoon summer sun. It loves where it is. Slight shade seems the answer this year.
I posted this on Southern gardens but apparently no one visits that site anymore.
