Field Trip to Native Texas Nursery

by Debbi Harris

Last week, members of our Chapter went on a field trip to the Native Texas Nursery in Manor. The trip was organized by Catherine Johnson, who uses them as a source for many of the plants in our Wildcape. The nursery has 40 acres of outdoor plantings and greenhouses, called casas by the team.


We had a great tour guide, Mandy Pixler, and learned a lot about how native plants are propagated from her.

More information on the trip is found in the captions on the photos below!

The area where they mix up bins of soil was very interesting. Here is where they put the soil into different sizes of pots.

Lots and lots of pots.
