Let’s give butterflies and bees a helping hand as habitats diminish. Certified Master Naturalist Drake White of The Nectar Bar, a native plant landscaping company in San Antonio, steps us through easy ways to turn our gardens into year-long habitats. On tour in San Antonio, Christine and Richard Alcorta’s cinder block vegetable garden on rocky soil did the trick to attract pollinators for year-long harvests. Find out when to fertilize fruit trees and what’s troubling a persimmon and fig tree with Jim Kamas, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension fruit specialist. Do your indoor succulents look a little sickly? Monique Capanelli of Articulture Designs shows how to diagnose the problem.
