    Peter was a fantastic host and very welcoming. He even had a wonderful selection of refreshments and foods for guests! The garden was just beautiful. Peter provided great information on edible plants, species of plants, dry gardening, and even landscaping! I learned so much and cannot wait to get a Chili Picena for my own garden!

    Peter was an extremely knowledgeable host and shared a wealth of information with the group. The group was given a few garden tours of his dry Texas garden. The garden was amazing and the plants that are native to Texas included the huge nopales cacus, a flowering quince, Texas mountain laurel, lemon verbena and a host of other plants (some potted, but most were in ground). People in attendance enjoyed the meet-up as evidenced by many many questions and interest that gardeners and potential gardeners showed. Peter and Julie also provide a home-made gourmet breakfast of cheeses, breads and wines. That was by far the most interesting and beautiful meeting I have attended in a long time. Peter sure knows his plants, his garden design, and is well plugged into the gardener community.

    It was nice of Peter Schaar to host this event at his house. His hospitaltiy was as nice as his garden. Thank you, Peter!
