On the second Monday of every month, Houston Matters sets aside a little bit of time to field your gardening questions for Meg Tapp from The Garden Club of Houston. And now that the weather is truly shifted to Houston's version of autumn, it's a great time to talk about what you might want to do now that you can spend time tending to your garden without having to worry about melting!

We received a number of intriguing questions from listeners for Meg on subjects ranging from starting seeds indoors, to replacing dying boxwoods, to growing blueberries, to why a Houstonian’s tomato plant is not bearing fruit.

In the audio above, check out Meg’s answers to those and other questions. (And if you have further questions for Meg Tapp, she’s answering them at the Garden Club of Houston Bulb Mart this weekend.)
