About This Quiz

Gardening is a very healthy and pleasant activity for people of any age. With modern tools being the way they are, you really don't need to be very mobile to be able to maintain a lovely garden. However. there are a lot of places where it is hard to predict how much water you're likely to get, whether from the ground or the sky, in any given season, and as the climate warms, this will only become a more serious problem.

Droughts don't just happen in places like California or Arizona. They also happen in rainy places, as technically a drought is just another word for, "Less rain than this area typically gets." A drought is thus something that any gardener should be prepared to tackle. After all, there is nothing more miserable than working your butt off to make your garden a haven for you and your family, only to have it shrivel up and turn into a miserable brown wasteland. That means knowing what plants to plant, how to conserve water, how to use shade wisely and what fertilizers and tools to use are all key to a successful drought-proof garden. Do you know how to do all that? Let's find out!
