Re: Re: Black & blue salvia

I see, well mine will be in amended clay so likely it won't need a whole
boatload of water then. Clay holds that moisture until it dries out in

I'll have to pick a bed that doesn't get too much watering during the dry season.
Thanks Theresa!

Sort of a combination of decent loam on the top 2-3 inches, with clay 
under that- in summer the water never soaks into the clay- just runs 
right off down the hill.
