With the growing concern about water, the Drought Tolerant Garden on page 47 in Gardening from a Hammock will be of interest to many gardeners. Marjorie and Jeff Mason practice xeriscape gardening, gardening that requires no watering regardless of how hot and sunny it is. Although they stumbled into this practice by necessity, they now are serious advocates.
They both love new and unusual plants and their nursery , Mason House Gardens in Uxbridge, Ontario, has more than 1500 plant varieties.
Jeff and Marjorie also lecture, plus Marjorie can be heard Saturday mornings hosting her garden radio show on CKDO, Oshawa, Ontario. Check out their ornamental and heirloom veggies at http://www.masonhousegardens.com.
