What would you say is your specialty?
All-around nurseryman, but especially knowledgeable in trees and tree health, drought tolerant plants, and proper pruning of plants in general.
If you could be a plant which would you be and why?
A Leucophyllum Frutescens, commonly know as a "Texas Ranger". This evergreen shrub is attractive, self-sufficient, low-water need, and flowers late spring through early fall.
What kind of plant background/experience do you have?
My father is a retired nurseryman and I learned many of the basics from him. I am otherwise self-taught through practical, on-the-job experience and reading anything and everything I can about plants and nature. My motto is - "Noone can know everything about the plant world due to its
vast diversity, but a serious gardener should try to learn something new everyday."
What is your best piece of garden/yard advice?
Learn everything you can about soils, because that is the plants home and "deep-watering", because many plants will be more tolerant of drought and heat if their root system is healthy.
