INSECT RESISTANCE

Insect pests are one of the most difficult problems in the realm of gardening. One effective strategy to this pressure is to choose varieties that are naturally resistant to insects. Check with your local Master Gardeners association or your local university Extension office to inquire about these varieties.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT PLANTS FOR YOUR REGION

When choosing plants, you want to first gather information about your specific region. For example, does it have a wet or dry climate? Are there prolonged periods of drought or rainfall? What are the average low and high temperatures throughout each season? You want to tailor your plant selections to these relative conditions.

Drought tolerant varieties can withstand extended periods without water. If you live in a desert climate or an area with little rainfall, choose these varieties.

If your region has extremely harsh winters, choose cold hardy annuals and perennials that can withstand prolonged frigid temperatures.
