Tomorrow on The Weekend Gardener
I'm so slack! I should have posted this a few days ago, but it's summer and I am spending less and less time indoors! Nevertheless, I hope you'll join me tomorrow on The Weekend Gardener - 11 am to 1 pm on News 95.7 FM, News 91.9 FM and News 88.9 FM or online at www.news957.com.
Susan Mosher, the owner of Oceanview Garden Centre and Landscaping (www.plantcrazy.ca) in Chester will join me live in studio to talk about some of the new plants for 2011 - she just had a preview! As well, she'll share some of her favourite garden plants and fill me in on whether the new lilac 'Bloomerang' is living up to the hype!
Also, Craig LeHoullier (http://nctomatoman.weebly.com/) will chat about keeping your tomatoes healthy and disease free! Plus, what do you do with all of those tomatoes?!?! Craig has some great ideas - as always - and I'm really looking forward to talking with him again.
Finally, Peter Schneider, the author of 'Right Rose, Right Place' will be my guest! Peter is also the author of the combined rose list, the annual list of the roses in commerce and the author of 'Peter Schneider on Roses' and the editor of 'Taylor's Guide to Roses'. Phew! He's a busy guy and he'll join me to talk all about his gardens (and his THOUSANDS of roses) and what roses will do best in our Maritime climate. Spoiler - Peter gardens in zone 5, so we should be able to grow most of what he can grow!
Plus, I'll have a copy of Peter's new hardcover book - Right Rose, Right Place - to give away! (If my producer can pry it from my hands!) It is gorgeous! For your chance to win - be one of our callers 1-877-801-8255.
I hope you'll join me.. Happy Gardening!
