Desert Horticulture

Bob Morris

Desert Horticulture is as unique to horticulture as the desert to other environments. Growing plants in the desert is part science and part art. The science must be "tweeked" to grow plants successfully here. This podcast takes questions from listeners, and topic suggestions that are current, and discusses how to 'tweek" the science for Desert Horticulture.
