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.


Upcoming Shows

Foodscaping, Backyard Orchards, Figs

January 2, 2019

Our first guest is Brie Arthur, a horticulturist, foodscaping expert, and author of The Foodscape Revolution. Foodscaping is all about making the most of the square footage that is available.

Brie is a passionate advocate of local food production and producing food in our landscapes. Her goal is to change the way landscapes are designed and managed by planting edibles in traditional ornamental landscapes. Brie’s training as a horticulturist and previous work as a grower and a propagator give her some neat insights and an understanding of why things might or might not work in the garden.

Our next guest, Ross Raddi, is a 27-year-old backyard millennial orchardist from the Philadelphia area. Ross’ goal is to grow tasty food that’s hard to find at the store and that is not supposed to grow in his area. Ross is also a fig expert.
