In addition to being stewards of natural habitat and resources, Texas Master Naturalists are often gardeners, too. Sometimes they are also a part of the Texas Master Gardeners Association, a parallel program for training volunteers in local horticulture. As such, there is a lot of overlap in our areas of expertise, with a curiosity about all the intricacies of nature being at the center.

This week, Daphne Richards, Travis County horticulturalist for Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, examines the gardening question of CAMN President Marc Opperman on Central Texas Gardener and delivers a detailed lesson on plant growth mechanics. Catch the segment at the 18 minute mark, or just enjoy the whole show.
