June 6th on The Weekend Gardener!

It's going to be a busy weekend for me.. not only do I have the show on Sunday (from 11 to 1 pm), but my editor (Carleen) and the photographer (Joe) for my book are coming up from the US for 5 days for the first photo shoot for my book - so exciting!

This Sunday on The Weekend Gardener will be a blast, as so many great guests will be sharing their expertise with us..

Craig LeHouillier, who is also known as The North Carolina Tomato Man will join me to talk all about tomatoes - what to grow, how to do it and how to get the biggest, best-tasting tomatoes ever! Check out his website and blog at -

Also, Cathy Oulton from Springvale Nurseries will drop by to share some of her favourite ornamental trees and shrubs! We'll cover an array of trees and shrubs for all growing conditions.. we also welcome your calls about what types of ornamentals will do well on your own property! (1-877-801-8255 is the toll free number for the show)

Danielle Ernest from Proven Winners will tell us all about the hot new container plants for 2010, as well some of the unique hydrangeas that Proven Winners has been developing over the past several years (re-blooming and hardy!).

Finally, Jane Rostek will offer a preview on the upcoming YWCA Over the Garden Gate garden tour in Halifax. It takes place on June 13th from noon to 5 pm and tickets are available at Halifax Seed and Farmer Clem's for just $15! There are 5 outstanding gardens on the tour this year (trust me, I've seen several of them!), so grab your garden buddy and get your tickets for this good cause!

All the fun takes place this Sunday from 11 to 1 pm on News 95.7 FM, News 91.9 FM and News 88.9 FM! You can also listen live online at

Happy Gardening!
