Summer is official in the
. Weather in Pangasinan has a prevailing temperature of 34 degrees but it feels like 36 degrees Centigrade making it a dry season. Where the scorching heat is too harsh for the plants, finding ways and means to beat the heat are the main concerns to sustain the plants’ needs. Frequent watering will help the plants in a way, but the dry air will cause the leaves to lose the water they’ve absorbed at a faster rate. Philippines
Some plants love broken shades. So grateful I have these palm trees even for a small garden that I have, they add a tropical look.
|Foxtail Palm, Wodyetia Bifurcata|
|Hyophorbe Laginicaulis, Champagne Tree|
|Verichia Merillii, Manila Palm Tree|
Others fronds burn easily that a patio umbrella is needed for a filtered sunlight effect. Ferns are sensitive to bright light and they may find it too intense for them. Now I know where I should put these ferns...(sigh)
|Pebbles help in increasing the humidity as the water evaporates.|
|I opted for white pebbles.|
