The Weekend Gardener - Sunday, May 23rd
This Sunday is the start of Season 4 on The Weekend Gardener! I'm really excited about the new season and we've got some amazing guests lined up for you!
To start the season off with a bang, we've got Elizabeth Peirce, the author of Grow Organic: A Simple Guide to Nova Scotia Vegetable Gardening! We'll be taking your questions on what to grow this year and how to do it. As well, I have 2 copies of her new book to give away to our callers!
Then, Michelle Fike from the Wolfville and Kentville Farmers Markets will join me to fill us in on upcoming events!
At noon, Dorothy Horton, the publisher of the fantastic new gardening magazine, Gardens East will tell us about some of the amazing gardens that have been featured in the past few issues as well as upcoming articles.
Finally, Michelle Muis from Blomidon Nurseries will join me to share some of her favourite perennials and ornamental grasses! She'll also give us a preview into what is hot and new for 2010 (Hello, coneflowers!?) and tackle what to grow in those difficult spots - shady, hot and dry, etc.
Again, we'll be taking your questions throughout the show and we'll have books to give away to callers, so please tune in!
