In the last eight years we have had too many fires creep into our surrounding foothills and even into the city of Wenatchee. With our ever changing climate it has made me wonder what I should or should not be planting in the garden to prevent flammability. Recently, I came across a very handy piece of information created by the Chelan/Douglas County Master Gardener Program. This pamphlet gave information on ground covers, perennials, vines, deciduous shrubs, broadleaf evergreen shrubs, non-turf grasses, trees and landscape zones. If you live near the outskirts of town or out of town and haven’t seen this information, you should get ready to save this information. If you live in a city, but live in a highly flammable region, this information still pertains to you. So check it out at the link below.
