Welcome to Texas Gardening
Texas is a BIG state. Our hot summer months are June, July, August, September, with October being hot to warm in some years. Gardening in each section of the state is different:
East Texas and Northeast Texas have forests, lakes, Lots of rainfall, farming of all types. Gardening is year round, but sometimes there are cold snaps that slows it down a bit.
West Texas is close to 800 miles away from East Texas and is semi-desert with temps up to 100 degrees in the summer months, very little rain fall, no lakes, no trees except those planted by man in the cities and towns. It is mostly flat open plains where cattle graze on thousands of acres (100 acres are needed to feed one cow, ranches are very large.), sheep herding has also become popular. There are large farms that have to be irrigated. Home gardening is very popular in the cities and towns and is big business for plant nurseries and gardening centers.
Northwest Texas, which it the panhandle, has beautiful canyons and wildlife.
South Texas stretches from Louisiana to the country of Mexico and is on the Gulf of Mexico, there are miles and miles of sandy beaches with tropical gardening year round in the cities and towns.
