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.
June 6, 2018. Episode 4
We talk with Dr. Ieuan Evans about growing fruit on the Canadian Prairies. Ieuan will share tips for success with fruit in cold climates. Then he will tell us about apple, pear, cherry, and plum varieties suited to cold areas.
We can thank Ieuan for the Alberta-developed Evans cherry tree that has been sold in the millions across cold areas of Canada and the United States. He tested them back in the 1970s shared them with as many people as he could.
And something that is dear to our hearts: He grows figs in Edmonton!
