As the summer sun slowly starts to peak over the horizon, many Texans will be traversing  indoors this year to experience that little bit of modern magic we like to call air-conditioning. AC isn’t just a luxury it’s a life-saver, especially in urban settings. However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t some downfalls. Aside from their contribution to green house gases, old filters and inefficient machines

Here at Native Edge we love Spring! However, we know we’re not alone in saying sometimes there can be too much of a good thing. Pollen is one of the most common allergens in the United States and aside from taking allergy shots, or antihistamines, the best way to diminish symptoms is to avoid the allergen altogether. That’s why we’re

It’s Christmas time, and down here in Texas we do things slightly differently than in other states. That’s why, with a name like “Christmas cactus”, you knew I wasn’t going to miss the opportunity to talk about this succulent sweetheart.  1. Watering/Soil. Christmas cactus, or Schlumbergera bridgessii, needs moist soil to grow, but not soaking. Too much and the plant will

With the weather finally starting to cool down and the holiday spirit starting to ramp up, you’re probably planning on preparing a lot of holiday meals this coming winter and fall. And what would a holiday meal be, of course, without some fresh herbs! Herbs not only taste good, they look good, and can be a beautiful part of any landscape. Especially, when
