Hello everyone. My family is moving to Phoenix this summer and I'm so excited to start gardening again. It's been over 10 years since I last had a garden so I'm considering myself a newbie. I'd love to hear from other gardeners in the low dessert

A big welcome from Ohio, Greeta! Glad to have you here!  Be sure to visit the regional forum  for Southwestern Deserts, and check out what others in the area are doing.

Welcome Geeta, from Redding, CA. Not exactly low desert, but pretty close. How soon will you be settled and ready to start gardening?

Hi Greta. Welcome from Atlanta, GA! Glad you've joined us.

You might search in the archives for Brainchasm's posts. He's in that same environment, I believe.

Three things for desert growing:  water, overhead shade cloth, water, mulch, and water.

Mulch slows down surface evaporation of water and shades the Mel's Mix to keep it and the roots cool.

Overhead shade cloth cools down the whole garden area and prevents sun scald of the plants and fruits.  If you are hot and miserable in the sun, so will be the plants.  

Water, well really important. Wink
