The Garage Gardeners Radio Show
Garden Radio to Help You
Garden Beyond Your Zone
Live garden talk radio for zone-pushers and season extenders
The Garage Gardeners Radio Show is a garden radio show that talks to gardeners who are creative zone-pushers and season-extenders.
It's hosted by two “garage gardeners” who use their garage to push their own gardening boundaries. Steve stores his dormant fig, lemon, and brugmansia plants in the garage over the winter, while Emma gets an early start with tomatoes on the garage roof.
This show is about creatively gardening beyond your zone.
It’s about “upzoning” your garden.

Year-round vegetable gardening with Niki Jabbour, author of a book we LOVE, The Year-Round Vegetable Gardener. Niki is a zone-pushing and season-extending vegetable gardener in Nova Scotia who will tell us about cold frames, cloches, hot caps, and hoop tunnels—and what crops grow well in them. We'll talk about crops for the shoulder seasons. And we'll also talk to Niki about her fabulous new book Veggie Garden Remix, which is full of ideas for new and unusual crops for the vegetable garden.
