I think much of this depends on where in Texas you are, and what you are 
trying to garden.  Too many people make the initial mistake of trying to grow 
northern plants in a southern area!!  Once they realize that there are an 
abundance of plants (including natives and tropicals) that grow extremely 
well here, then they change their tune.  

I've gardened in hot,dry places....Mojave desert in Ca., El Paso and San 
Antonio, Tx.  Now here in west Houston. I enjoyed each very much, although a 
challenge at first.  Plants just seem to thrive and bloom more, have longer 
growing seasons, more plant diversity, than I experienced in Germany or 
elsewhere.  But that is just my experience and opinion.
