Help your potted plants beat the heat

The north American Pacific Northwest has been experiencing some unusually high temperatures the last week or so and all of us in the northern hemisphere are coming into the dog days of summer. It's important to keep container plants from overheating and sometimes protect them from the sun. I came across this article on lots of tips for doing just that and I thought I'd share.

BTW? Container Gardening is a really nice news letter to subscribe to. Lots of concise, pertinent information in occasional newsletters. There are tons of other 'back issue newsletters' to browse through, too. What's even better is they don't spam you!
