  • Please Help With Bed Preparation for Parker County.

    BED PREPARATION: Now that you have a plan, it's time to prepare areas for planting. Adequate bed preparation is probably the most important thing you can do to improve your chances of success in your garden. The principles described in this section apply to all kinds of planting, including turf grasses, shrubs, trees and vegetables.

  • Will Azaleas Thrive in Parker County?

    My Azaleas are not doing well? Is this normal for Parker County?  Yes! Parker County soils are too alkiline for Azaleas or any of the plants in that family. Unless you are prepared to do extraordinary bed preparation and continue with special care for their life expectancy. Or grow them in containers with the correct soil PH. Azaleas need acid soils.  You will have fewer headaches by choosing plants that are native or adapted to our area.
