A recent, brief rain shower was a welcome relief to this hydrangea during an unusually hot and dry Whidbey Island summer.
Bayview Farm & Garden opened nearly 25 years ago, and in that time we have never seen conditions on Whidbey Island this dry. The heat and drought are concerning. Will Whidbey—and the rest of the planet — need to contend with a “new normal” in weather patterns?
Whether we will or not, this dry spell is a good time for a few reminders on caring for plants in extreme heat and on the basics of water conservation in yard and garden.

Effective Watering and Conservation
The specialists at Bayview Farm & Garden have the knowledge, plants and equipment to help you implement many of the above strategies. For example, we can provide drought resistant plants for your garden and talk with you about xeriscaping, which is landscaping and gardening techniques that require less water than traditional methods.
With concerted effort, we can both derive maximum enjoyment from our gardens and help conserve our precious water supply.
