With ever increasing awareness of environmental changes, we feel strongly that big change will only occur if everyone will do small things that are achievable without government or big business interference. One energy saving light bulb, one less monster SUV on the road, one less hamburger stuffed at lunch time or one less bucket of water used can go a long way if only we all start doing it. To help reduce water usage at Toronto gardens we have put together a page with perennials that use less of this precious commodity to thrive in city conditions. All plants require supplemental water for the first growing season. Do not allow newly planted perennials to dry out. Depending on seasonal rainfall, water your garden deeply every one to two weeks.
To see varieties and complete description for each perennial, simply click its name.
