Horticulturist and Garden Center Manager
I love my job! Having worked in Horticulture for most of my life, I have developed a special appreciation of the relationships between us and our natural world. I endeavor to take every opportunity to share my knowledge about good stewardship of our natural resources, sustainable gardening and living practices, organic technique, and conservation. Come on in, and we'll chat!
Tim's Garden Digest - Fall/Winter Edition
Fall and winter are full of opportunities for productive gardening chores here. Unlike some parts of the country, the cooler seasons are still part of the gardening season in the Texas Hill Country. Protection against the coldest weather is important, of course, for tropicals and other tender plants, and we have cloches, frost fabric, mini-greenhouses, heat lamps, tarps, and everything you need to protect tender plants.
Spring blooming flower bulbs should be planted in October and November. November brings the beginning of the onion planting season, which lasts through February. Fruit trees and vines can be planted throughout the wintery months and wildflower seeds should be planted by December.
Winter is the best time to apply dormant oil, which is probably the easiest, cheapest, and most effective method of dealing with pests on fruit and ornamental trees. It is also the perfect time to spade compost and other organic materiel into your garden soil, leaving it to completely incorporate into your garden before springtime.
Cool weather vegetables, like broccoli, cabbage, kale, cauliflower, chard, lettuce, spinach, and others can be successively planted through early spring. Flowers like pansies, violas, snapdragons, and dianthus usually winter well, blooming with only a little encouragement.
January brings planting season for asparagus, which does very well here, and potatoes, which do well in areas with good, deep, well-drained soil.
