A cactus fairy garden is perfect for summer! It requires very little water, is easy to take care of, and brightens your porch all summer long! Thank you, Scotts®, for sponsoring our creativity.
The girls and I made a darling fairy garden in the spring and it lasted a couple of months, but with the super high temps and lack of rain, it wasn’t easy to keep it watered! Cue the cactus fairy garden—perfect for summer.
Cactus Fairy Garden
California is suffering from one of the worse droughts in history and the governor has mandated a 25% water reduction. After spending so much money on a beautiful sod lawn a few years ago we really want to keep it alive during this drought and conserve water. That’s the balancing act and it’s all about moderation.
With the ground being so dry and hard, it seems like the water just kind of runs off instead of thoroughly being absorbed. I honestly think it is all about making each drop of water count. I knew it would only be a matter of time before one of the gardening companies came up with something to help with this. We recently got a package of Scotts® EveryDrop™ .
When added to lawns or gardens, EveryDrop™ can help water spread out and sink into the soil, allowing more water to reach the roots – where it is needed most – and hydrate the plants–saving up to 25% in water.
Ideally, we would use this at the beginning of spring and continue to apply to our growing areas throughout the summer and early. Since it just became available at Lowe’s, Home Depot, and Orchard Hardware September 1st, we will apply it this month and continue in the spring. I hope we see results soon!
