Sunday May 30th on The Weekend Gardener

Coming up tomorrow on The Weekend Gardener:
  • My favourite garden author, Barbara Pleasant will join me to chat all about her new book, Starter Vegetable Gardens - 24 No Fail Plans. I've got a copy to give away and we'll be welcoming your questions about veggie (or any other type) of gardening! She's also written books on composting and houseplants, so please tune in!
  • Maureen Mcllwain from Kingsbrae Gardens in New Brunswick will tell us what's in bloom in the gardens, as well as fill us in on upcoming events and contests!
  • Finally, Barry McPhee of McKenzie Seeds will join me to talk about some of the gorgeous new varieties for 2010 and offer tips on planting seeds outdoors - flower, herb and veggie!
The Weekend Gardener runs every Sunday from 11 to 1 pm Atlantic time on News 95.7 FM, News 91.9 FM and News 88.9 FM or listen online at!

Happy Gardening!


  1. Good show Niki. We were travelling in the car so unfortunately we missed the man from Mckenzie Seed.Garden centre and the car turned in automatically. Barbara Pleasant was most informative and we have enjoyed her book.

  2. Funny about cars and garden centres.. my car also seems to have that defect! :)

    Glad you enjoyed it.. thanks!
