Most know Randy as the host for GardenLine, the long-running radio show on NewsRadio 740 KTRH in Houston, Texas. Gardening enthusiasts throughout the state tune in on Saturdays and Sundays from 6am-10am to listen to him give advice on everything from Aphids to Zoysia grass. It is the “most-listened-to” garden show of its kind in the whole country, mainly because it’s on the air for 4 hours on Saturday and 4 hours on Sunday. That’s about 3 times more “on air hours” than any other call-in gardening show in the country.
For those who miss a show, they can find his advice in any of the four books he has written and self-published about gardening for Houston and the Gulf Coast. His latest book “Texas Tough Gardening” includes what he learned while helping others rebuild their landscapes and gardens after Hurricane Harvey in 2017 and Arctic Freeze Uri in February in 2021.
Randy is perfectly ‘educated’ as the host of GardenLine, because he has a B.S. from Texas A&M in Journalism (emphasis on broadcast) and while working for Texas A&M he garnered a Master’s of Science in Agriculture. So, when you boil it all down, Randy has had his life’s work wrapped around providing information on Gardening and Agriculture to Texans, especially Gulf Coast Texans, for over 35 years.
With all of this experience, it’s no wonder Randy’s fans refer to him as the Garden Guy, the Garden Guru or even the Garden Goober for Houston and the Gulf Coast.
