Neil Sperry grew up in College Station. He’s been a plant geek all of his life, tracking along with his dad, a Range Management professor at Texas A&M University. Neil owned and operated a nursery and landscaping business in high school, and many of his trees still line major streets of his hometown.
He attended Texas A&M, but transferred to Ohio State University and received both his B.S. and M.S. degrees in horticulture. He taught high school horticulture in Shelby, Ohio, for two years before joining the Texas AgriLife Extension for seven years (1970-1977).
Neil is a featured garden columnist weekends in the Fort Worth Star Telegram (since 1977), San Antonio Express News (since 1995) and 12 other newspapers (since 1971).
