Why Vines?

“Then said all the trees to the vine, come and reign over us.” Judges 9:14

And vines still do. They are among the fastest-growing kinds of plants and the most useful, producing flowers, seeds and fruit which attract colorful butterflies, birds and hummers. They beautify necessities such as fences, mechanical devices – and neighbors’ unsightly nuisances. Though often deciduous and barren in winter, their abundance during the rest of the year can create magic in an otherwise difficult growing environment.

When Sir Oliver Smith moved to San Antonio from Southern California he learned what many of us do: you can’t grow that here. Bemused and defied, he became a Master Gardener, Naturalist and Pruner; worked with experts at the Schultze House Gardens, Botanical Gardens, Native Plant and Herb societies; served as Xeriscape Contest Chairman for Bexar County; was Master Gardener of the year in 2000; and transformed a rocky half-acre of St Augustine into a wildscape paradise. Today he will bring his hard-won expertise to both inform and inspire us.
