177-An Overview of Ornamental Grasses and Grass-like Plants, with John Greenlee

10/7/2020
Ornamental grasses are now common sights at nurseries and garden centers, but that hasn’t always been the case. One of the earliest advocates of incorporating native and ornamental grasses and grass-like plants into American gardens was horticulturist and landscape designer John Greenlee — a well-known and respected expert in grass ecology known as the “Grassman” or “Grass Guru,” among other monikers — and he’s my guest on the podcast this week.

176-Always Learning: 10 Lessons the Garden Has Taught Us in 2020, with Meg Cowden

9/30/2020
The most satisfying triumphs in the garden are built on experimentation and, yes, what many call failures, but what I always call learning opportunities. Perhaps no one I know pushes the boundaries of what’s possible in the garden further than veteran gardener, Meg Cowden of the blog Seed to Fork, so I invited her on the podcast this week to find out what lessons she’s learned from her garden in 2020.

175-Decoding Gardening Advice, With Dr. Jeff Gillman - Encore Presentation

9/23/2020
Despite the best efforts of gardening educators to debunk poor gardening advice, bad information continues to be shared online and elsewhere by well-meaning, though ill-informed, gardeners.

174-Season Extension Practices for Getting More from Your Garden, with Niki Jabbour

9/16/2020
When many gardeners are picking their last crops for the year and getting ready to say goodbye to their gardens until spring, Niki Jabbour doesn’t slow down when temperatures drop. Though Niki lives in USDA zone 5b in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where winter temperatures can plunge to 0 degrees Fahrenheit, she can harvest fresh vegetables year-round because she implements season-extension practices and structures in her garden.

172-Tips for Growing Cool-Season Vegetables in Fall-Encore Presentation

9/2/2020
Of all the gardening seasons, the fall growing season is my favorite. Arugula, beets, broccoli, carrots, lettuce and more — there are so many cool-season vegetables that you can grow in fall and enjoy on your dinner plate. The trick is to know your first frost date and work backward from there to pick the right time to start growing cool-season vegetables either indoors or direct-sown from seed, or transplanted.

171-Gardening Mistakes to Avoid

8/26/2020
I like to encourage risk-taking in the garden because the stakes are usually very low, and we know that “mistake” is another word for “learning opportunity.” However, there are some common gardening mistakes to avoid that you don’t need to learn about the hard way.

170-Succession Planting Tips, with Meg Cowden

8/19/2020
What is succession planting? Succession planting is how gardeners make the most of limited space and extend their growing season beyond what’s considered typical of a region. To speak to this topic, I invited succession planting expert Meg Cowden of the blog Seed to Fork on the podcast for a previous episode, and I am reprising that conversation this week because now is when vegetable gardeners are taking steps to have a successful fall garden.

8/12/2020
Coming up on the middle of August, it’s clear that the 2020 gardening season is one for the record books — not for its performance, but for its challenges. Having been a gardener my whole life and in professional horticulture for more than 30 years, I can say that this was the year of all years for garden challenges.

167-Managing Plant Diseases Organically, with Jeff Gillman

7/29/2020
Plant diseases pose one of the biggest challenges that gardeners face, and while it can be tempting to reach for a chemical control, managing plant diseases organically is possible. To speak to that fact, I invited Dr. Jeff Gillman on the podcast a couple of years back, and I am revisiting that conversion this week because now is that time of summer when plant diseases show themselves in a garden that otherwise appeared healthy up until this point.

166-Tracing the History of Heirloom Seeds, With Seed Savers Exchange

7/22/2020
Every seed has a story to tell, if someone will listen. This week, I asked Sara Straate, the seed historian for Seed Savers Exchange, to come on the show and explain the work that goes into tracing the history of heirloom seeds that, in many cases, came to the exchange after being saved for generations by home gardeners. Seed Savers Exchange in Decorah, Iowa, is one of the country’s largest non-governmental seed banks, with more than 20,000 varieties in its ever-growing collection.

7/15/2020
Between keeping up with picking crops and beating back weeds, plant diseases, and pests, it’s common that gardeners feel overwhelmed, especially at the height of summer — or any time of the growing season.

One of my favorite gardening activities is plant propagation. In fact, you could say that it’s what first got me interested in gardening as a young child.

161-Growing Tomatoes: Mid-Season Care With Craig LeHoullier-Encore Edition

6/17/2020
It's safe to say that mid-June is sort of the "honeymoon" phase of gardening. The final cold snaps are behind us. The plants in our landscapes are abundant in foliage. Yet, it's early enough that pest and disease issues haven't left us feeling disheartened. Yet it's what we do now with growing tomatoes, that critical mid-season care, which will keep our plants growing strong through the more challenging times ahead.
