Title: Native plants for free in Hutto, TX
Answered by: Barbara Medford

QUESTION:

We have moved in to a new subdivision and I would like to plant native Texas desert plants and flowers. We will only be in this house for two or three years so I don't want to spend a lot of money.Is there anywhere I can get these plants free?

ANSWER:

Sorry, at this point we know of no organization offering free landscaping plants to the public. If you wish, you might send us a question asking for suggested plants for your particular area that could be fairly low cost.
