newbie/lurker and finally have a question

Ok I am starting my Garden (finally after 2 years) I am having a debate with what I should plant, I know I want lots of color, but the weather in the summer here is so hot and humid (middle of texas) so I am afraid that they will burn or just plain die. I was wondering if any one has this heat problem and what you plant.
It's always darkest before the dawn. So if you're going to steal your neighbor's newspaper, that's the time to do it.

Re: newbie/lurker and finally have a question

  • I would talk to someone at a local nursery (not a big box store, and actual nursery) and see what they recommend for your area. You should be able to get some good ideas there.

    FWIW, my parents live in the Mojave desert in CA (summer temps in the 110s). Their entire backyard is a rose garden and my dad has done very well with herbs.

  • Do you have deer? Being in Central Texas I assume you do- that can greatly determine what you should plant.

  • Well we live in the city so we dont have many deer unless you go a little further south where its not built up. I do like the Rose Garden idea we have a spot in our back yard that nothing will grow in since it gets full sun -- i will have to talk with someone at the nursery about that. Thanks for the help and advice
