I recently took on the large native plant garden project in front of our school. I am a traditional gardener, but don't have much experience with natives. The garden gets noticed (and misunderstood!) quite a bit since it's in front. Right now most of it is dry and brown. Is it normal for the majority of the garden to be dormant for the summer, and is dry/brown what it looks like? Should I tend to it/water at all other than weeding?
