Hot in Baltimore
Even in Baltimore they need to think ahead to an arid August.
Succulents can help you avoid the inevitable late-summer garden battle

I had no idea that was as true in Maryland as it is in the Bay Area. So you could learn a thing or two from the good people who bring you crab cakes, for instance:
1. Plan Ahead when gardening so that you don’t have a bunch of dead plants at the end of the summer.
2. Plant Pretty Succulents in strawberry pots for wonderful and beautiful effects that can be enjoyed indoor and outdoor year-round.
3. Did I mention that succulents can help you with items 1 and 2 above?
