Master Gardener Lynne Berry Westlake will introduce participants to succulents and other drought tolerant or xeric plants that require smaller amounts of water. This workshop highlights some of the many types of xeric plants, including those native to Hawaii. Topics covered include: selecting the right containers, aeration, potting mixes, fertilizers, and alternate methods of providing adequate hydration.
