The Potted Desert View
This blog is for you, the native or transplanted desert dweller. Our harsh and varied desert climates continually present a challenge for gardeners. Those of you who have moved from a colder climate such as the mid-west or New England, you have most likely tried to find container gardening information that tells you how to grow the kind of garden like you had 'back home.'

There is a freeze warning for the Tucson area for
tonight through Thursday morning.
Be sure you cover your plants!
Cover tender annuals and perennials
Do not use towels or plastic.
Plastic conducts the cold
towels hold in the moisture which will then freeze
Use Clothespins or rocks to tie down the frost cloths.
Keep plants covered at least until Thursday mid-morning.
Double check the forecast for Thursday night to see if it is ok to uncover.
Cover newly planted tender plants.
Citrus, tender annuals such as geraniums, euphorbias
