The title says it all. Living way down south with no rain to speak of and really hot summers I've been trying for a few years to grow Sarrs. Well this year I've had my first success.
I took a 18"ish tall trash can and drilled drainage holes about 6" up all around the trash can then filed it with peat/sand. This would allow the top 12" of medium to drain while keeping some water in the bottom of the container. Dug a hole, picked up a Sarr from the local chain store and off the experiment went.
Following local watering rules I only watered twice a week at most and here are the results. Nothing amazing but the first Sarr to live through the 110 degree summer!
The Ping was more of an afterthough while repotting some indoor stuff late summer.

It looks so much better now than when we "saved" it from the store.

If everything goes well over the next year I might have to build a proper bog, seems depth is the key with the drought/heat.
