    Hello, Attempting Desert gardening

    Azalea, I even use shade cloth here in SE Qld during the hot summer months. It keeps the soil cool & the leaves don't expire too fast in the 110F/42C degree days.

    Just wondering if you ever got quail started. I'm in Texas also and have similar questions about temperature. If about 91* F makes them pant, what will 100* do?
