Question by justklee: Herb Garden in a desert climate????
I love to cook and want my own herb garden but I live in a desert climate, will my herb garden survive in triple digit temp? If no herb garden…any other pretty desert plants besides thorny catus plants I can grow?

Unless you have limited water, herbs should be possible. Use drip irrigation. If you are having trouble in full sun, plant on North side of structures, around/under shrubs and trees, or under shade cloth.
Local garden centers and other gardeners should be able to get you started with attractive plants. Consider foliage color and ‘structure’ in addition to flowers and again make use of shade.
