High Heat Makes Your Plants Thirsty, Too!

Mr. Yellow Face

This year is already proving to be quite a challenge for Tucson gardeners. Our crazy mild winter has given insects an early start, weeks of high wind have dried out our soils and left everything under a layer of dust, and now we’re sweating out higher temperatures than we’re used to seeing this early in the season.

Typically, we don’t see temperatures as high as today’s until early May, so we’re almost a month ahead of schedule! We know that this is great news for Eegees, but what does it mean for our plants?
