Today we’re talking about watering wisdom. Now's the time to be upgrading your watering system and choosing low-water-use plants.
 
Thinking of swapping out sprinklers for drip? We have drip irrigation basics on this episode.

And, your 2021 garden planning should include choosing plants that, once established, use less water. We talk with an expert who has conducted over 15 years of tests on plants and their water use here in Northern California.
 
The Green Acres staff pick this week is an easy-care houseplant.
 
And we have more garden tips that will save you water.
 
Welcome to the Green Acres Garden Podcast with Farmer Fred, the podcast that’ll help gardeners like you get an even greener thumb. Whether you’re new to gardening or a seasoned horticulturalist, you’re sure to learn something new. Brought to you by Green Acres Nursery & Supply, with six locations (and soon seven) in the Sacramento area.
