Resources in the Houston Area
Plant sales, planting charts & other gardening advice:
For high quality soil in bulk amounts, go to Nature’s Way in Conroe, and by the way, their composting facility offers a tour that visitors say is fascinating. You can also find it in bags at the stores listed below. Farm Dirt, made of Houston’s food waste in the 5th Ward, is also available bagged in the stores and at Eastside & Eastend Farmers Markets.
If you live west of Houston, Arbor Gate in Tomball is very active and has a lot of free classes, too. And last but not least, don’t forget “Year Round Vegetables, Fruits and…” by Bob Randall, an excellent resource that lists many more stores that supply vegetable gardens.
Below is quick summary of our small local nurseries & what they carry.
