This Weekend on The Weekend Gardener...

Wow.. have we already reached the Victoria Day long weekend!? I love long weekends.. especially when we have not much planned except puttering around the house and maybe popping into a few farmer's markets. I do have the radio show on Sunday, of course and I'm really looking forward to this coming show!

When I first went down to North Adams, MA to visit my publisher, Storey Publishing ( in March of 2010, my editor was putting the finishing touches on a new container book. She had an entire wall covered with the photos from the book and I spent quite a bit of time checking out the gorgeous photos.  Now, that book has come out and the authors, Sara Begg Townsend and Roanne Robbins, will be joining me this weekend on the show!! Plus, I have copies to give away to a few lucky callers!!

Also, we'll be talking deer (and anything else you'd like to talk about) with Duncan Kelbaugh of Brunswick Nurseries.. and, Andrea Berry of Hope Seeds in NS will be sharing tips on planting Jerusalem artichokes and seed potatoes, as well as tell us about some of her favourite heirloom crops! Finally, we'll get an update on what's happening at the Kingsbrae Garden, which was voted one of top 5 gardens worth traveling for!

Exciting.. Hope you'll join me for all the garden fun! Listen at News 95.7 FM, News 91.9 FM or News 88.9 FM.. or live online at Sunday from 11 to 1 pm Atlantic time.

Happy Gardening!


  1. Wow! Great cover Niki--you must be so proud! Looking forward to seeing the rest of the book.

  2. What is seed tape and what purpose does it serve? Could you put the istructrutions here for how to plant using bags of soil. Do you need to put a frame around the bags and how deep. My space is 4'x8', not sure the yield I can get. i miss your program on sundays, so is there some way to find out what was discussed on the program? Thanks.
