The Ever Curious Gardener is described as an irreverent romp through the natural science of plants and soil, ideal for newer gardeners moving beyond back-of-the-seed-pack planting to experienced gardeners whose curiosity at the wonders of cultivation grows deeper and stronger with each season. Today’s guest is, Lee Reich, the author of “The Ever Curious Gardener – using a little natural science for a much better garden”. Teri Knight talked with Lee about why gardeners and farmers shouldn’t till soil, the timing of watering, drip irrigation, weeds, growing blueberry bushes and how to use micro-climates in our landscapes, along with much more! leereich.com
A fascinating discussion with Benjamin Vogt on his new book “A New Garden Ethic – cultivating defiant compassion for an uncertain future”. Our landscapes push aside wildlife and in turn diminish our genetically-programmed love for wildness. How can we get ourselves back into balance through gardens, to speak life’s language and learn from other species? Vogt poses the questions and proposes answers in his new book.
