Join Skip Richter, former horticulturist and host of GardenLine on KTRH 740 AM, to discuss some of the best native and adapted plants for creating a beautiful landscape in central Texas. Topics include the selection of plants that are pest and disease-resistant, thrive in local soil conditions, are drought-resilient, and can tolerate extremes of heat and cold to build a Texas tough landscape. Also hear from Denise Delaney, from the Watershed Protection Department who will finish up with "Wild About Plants", an overview of the Grow Green program.
