Extend The Season With Containers, Tomato Hornworm, Montreal Figs

We chat with horticulturist Jessica Walliser from Pennsylvania about using container gardening to extend the gardening season. Jessica, an experienced gardener and former market gardener, is the author of Container Gardening Complete, a comprehensive book about container gardening.

Jessica is also a bug expert, so in Emma’s Tomato Talk segment, Jessica tells us all about the tomato hornworm. Jessica’s books about bugs are Attracting Beneficial Bugs to Your Garden and Good Bug Bad Bug.

In the Biggs-on-Figs fig segment, Steven speaks with Michal, a Montreal fig enthusiast who talks about fig plants and fig growers he has met in Montreal and in his travels.
