Over 1.4 million Houstonians garden for a hobby or pastime, and GardenLine is where they listen for advice and information on gardening and landscaping.
Every Saturday and Sunday morning from 6 to 10, GardenLine's Randy Lemmon answers listeners' questions on everything from aphids to zoysias. He's Houston's absolute expert on lawns and gardens, offering help to listeners both with and without "green thumbs."
Randy's a Texas Aggie who truly KNOWS plants and flowers. He explains them with ease and candor, and is as competent a "plant person" as there is. He studies, and he practices. He embraces "new methods" as well as the "old" ways of dealing with problems. Call for Randy's solution for your question ... 713-212-KTRH (5874).
Can you believe it? Our final GardenLine Appearance of the Spring/Summer season is this Saturday at the Central Ace Hardware at 2422 Bay Area Boulevard in Clear Lake. While I will be broadcasting live from Galveston and Moody Gardens next Saturday and Sunday (June 22 - 23), those will not be anything like a typical GardenLine Appearance.
Since it is officiallyn time to do our summer fertilization, I can’t think of a better place nor a better reaso to be at one of our Texas Gulf Coast Ace Retailers. They have always kept many of the products on my fertilization schedule in stock.
If you’ve been paying attention to the radio show or our Facebook feed, you may already be snickering to yourself. "Randy, I know the ultimate reason why I’m coming to your appearance, and don’t take it personally, but it has nothing to do with you."
Okay, I admit it! There is another great reason to get over to Central Ace Hardware this Saturday: they are giving away a Traeger Lil’ Texas Elite BBQ07E. This baby retails for $799, and this prize package includes a front folding shelf, cover and two 20 lb. bags of wood pellets. While you do have to show up to register to win this awesome prize, you don’t have to be present to win at precisely 1 p.m. Saturday, June 15 when I draw the winner. If the winner is present, that’s stupendous. If not, we’ll call you as long as your number is on the slip.
Here’s a fun twist to the Saturday giveaways: we will also draw for free bags of Nitro Phos Fertilizers, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Even if you win a bag of Nitro-Phos Super Turf or Nitro-Phos Sweet Green, you will still be in the running for the Traeger Grill. However, you can only win one bag of fertilizer and possibly the grill. If your name is drawn more than once for fertilizer, we will simply draw another. We’ve have 4 bags of Super Turf and 4 bags of Sweet Green to give away. Again, you don’t have to be present to win, but you do have to show up between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. to register to win either the Traeger Texas Grill BBQ075 or the Nitro Phos products.
If you don't know about Traeger grills, I suggest you watch this video.
