The Water-Saving Garden book party and giveaway...

Today I am thrilled to be part of an online "blog-party" celebrating the release of The Water-Saving Garden, the new book by Pam Penick.

A sort of follow-up to the hugely successful Lawn Gone!The Water-Saving Garden is going to be a valuable resource for anyone interested in gardening with less water. The keyword there is gardening, Pam isn't advocating for spaces where plants are replaced by AstroTurf and gravel (although gravel does make a great mulch or alternative hardscape in a water-saving garden). Rather she explains how we can be surrounded by the natural beauty of plants in our gardens, while still conserving one of nature's most precious resources.

Pam gardens in Austin, Texas. Like many parts of the West the folks in Austin have suffered extended drought. Pam writes from experience, her own — as well as other gardener's — and includes colorful, lush photos to illustrate her points.

So if you don't live in Texas, Arizona, California...this book probably isn't for you, right? Wrong. We all should be gardening in a way that respects our resources. In the part one of the book "Drink Up the beauty & ingenuity of a water-saving garden" seven different gardens are profiled, two of them in Oregon — where it rains all the time — right? Nope, wrong again. Our modified Mediterranean climate means we have long (and seemingly getting longer) dry summers. Why not plant for this reality?

If you're a regular reader of this blog then you already know one of the gardens profiled in this section quite well, the Kuzma Garden. I'm also proud to note there are a few photos from my garden in the book, as well as ones from Scott Weber's garden, Tamara Paulat's garden and JJ De Sousa's garden as well as a few other locals...(sorry my Portland pride is showing!)...

After she tours you through the dazzling gardens at the beginning of the book, Pam then covers how to "make your garden a Water Saver, not a Water Guzzler" with tips on keeping rain water on your property, alternative irrigation ideas, and thoughts on the roles which soil, mulch and shade play in the garden.

Part three "Planting the water-saving garden" explores plant choices including where, how and when to plant. Part four "oasis or mirage? creating the Illusion of water in the garden" covers how to use water (or the illusion of it) for maximum effect in the garden. Finally part five lists 101 plants for planting in water-saving gardens.

For another perspective on Pam's book I invite you to read a review written by Kris, who blogs at Late to the Garden Party. Kris lives in the Los Angeles area and is gardening with a community required 36% reduction of water usage (from 2013 levels, when she'd already started to cut-back). Kris illustrates her book review with personal accounts (and great photos) from her garden. Read it here.

Now for the giveaway! (what's a party without door prizes?) I am delighted to be giving away a Circle Pot from Potted!

  1. I knew it would be good, but I'm even more excited to read Pam's book after seeing this review. As for the circle pot giveaway: Yes, please, because potted plants are a great way to control the amount of water used in any garden, right?

  2. I received my copy the other day but haven't had much time to spend with it, other than paging through the book. From what I've seen, though, I think it's destined to become a classic. It contains exactly the kind of information so many people in the West are thirsty for (sorry for the pun).

    I'll check out the other giveaways, too. I haven't won anything since I was 15, but it's always worth a try.

  9. Pam's twisty oak and persimmon trunks are part of the inspiration for the area I'm working on now. I've been focusing more and more on plants adapted to our dry summers, though I'm not a purist. Somehow I keep acquiring a few plants that need supplemental water, though they're all going into areas that are relatively moist, shaded, and receive supplemental water due to existing plants. I'm too much of an addict to say no. But even my "thirsty" plants these days aren't water hogs.

    You know my email. ;)

    1. Reading your comment it occurred to me this summer will be the first time I'm not babying a newly planted area. That's not to say there won't be new plants stuck in here and there but no big "must water to get established" swath.

      Delete
    2. Happy planting, Evan! You know, I'm not much into guilting anyone for a few water-loving plants. I have some myself growing in a container pond. It's about big-picture changes and overall embracing one's climate reality, and having fun and discovering the beauty of well-adapted and native plants.

  79. I have Pam's book and look forward to sitting down with it. I'm sure it's as great as her Lawn Gone. My succulents would love a home in this pot so please count me in on the giveaway.
