The Garden Academy

Gardening in the coastal South

Welcome to the Academy!

I garden on the Upper Gulf Coast of Texas - The Third Coast of the United States.  If you are new to the Third Coast, it can be a bit of an adjustment.  It’s a great place to garden, but it certainly has its challenges.  They say that if you can learn to garden here, you can garden almost anywhere.

The Garden Academy information is centered around the climate in Zones 9a & 9b and reaches northward to Zone 8 and southward to Zone 10.   However, a lot of what is offered here is based on techniques more than zones.  Many gardeners will find things that they can add to their own garden knowledge base with a few adaptations for climate.

How to use this site


Like us on Facebook, where we do fun garden stuff nearly every day.
And we throw in a little nature, recipes, garden art, and pets (since we garden with them daily).
