England Goes to Texas

Even if your garden isn’t Downton Abbey, most likely it has roots in English garden design. Find out why with insight from Texas A&M University’s Dr. William C. Welch. On tour, Jennifer and David Stocker built on childhood memories from across the pond when they designed their drought-tough garden on limestone. Daphne Richards explains why favorite northern plants, like peonies, can’t make the move to the Southwest. Her Plant of the Week is drought tough lamb’s ears, but find out why we can lose it. Merrideth Jiles from The Great Outdoors brings the garden indoors in low-care terrariums, even with succulents.
