The Lower Rio Grande Valley is a region of fertile soils and fairly equitable climate, but conditions are not favorable for the growing of many types of plants. It has been said that it is much easier to acclimate a tropical or subtropical subject to the temperate region than to grow plants from northern latitudes in the near tropics. Gardeners who have attempted to establish Dogwood or Maple trees in this region can testify as to the difficulty of using northern materials. Climate may not always be the most important factor affecting adaptability of many plants as soil.

ClimateThe Rio Grande Valley experiences a fair range of temperatures throughout the year. In summer, it can get quite hot, with temperatures up to 110 degrees on rare occasions. Because of the ranch's proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, the Gulf breeze usually makes the heat tolerable. During the winter, a light snow is even possible.
