On Saturday mornings, I love to listen to You Bet Your Garden on NPR. The show features, organic gardening advocate, Mike McGrath, who intertwines his quick wit with his vast knowledge of all things garden-related.
It’s a phone-call radio show, cats and kittens (I couldn’t resist!) featuring callers from all over the U.S. and Canada and includes topics ranging from caring for lilacs, to composting, to attracting hummingbirds to your yard.
Experts are interviewed or Mike points callers in the direction of resources when he’s unsure of the exact answer. In summary, a great source of information if you’re interested in gardening, flowers or just your yard in general.
You can tune into NPR at 11:00 a.m. EST Saturday morning or you can go to The You Bet Your Garden website where you can scroll through archives of the shows and listen, on-demand to your selected show.
You can also click on the ‘A to Z Garden Answers’ button and be linked to the Garden’s Alive! website, which provides an alphabetized list of pretty much everything you ever wanted to know about gardens.
Enjoy this wonderful resource!
