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.
