Live garden talk radio for Gardeners who Push Boundaries
The Garage Gardeners Radio Show is a garden radio show that talks to gardeners who are creative zone-pushers, season-extenders, and who like to challenge garden boundaries.
It's hosted by two “garage gardeners” who use their garage to push their own gardening boundaries. Steven 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.
Edible Flowers and Rogue Gardeners
March 6, 2019
In the first half of the show we talk with Pittsburgh horticulturist and author Denise Schreiber, author of the delicious book Eat Your Roses. Denise not only eats flowers, but she cooks with them too. Nasturtium-flower lasagna, calendula-corn muffins, rose petal ice cream. Yum!
In the second half of the show we chat with Toronto author and garden-boundary pusher Lorraine Johnson. Lorraine will share stories of "rogue gardeners," gardeners who push the boundaries of convention—sometimes running into trouble—but sometimes changing values about what is acceptable. Two of Lorraine’s focus areas are native plants and urban agriculture. Lorraine is the editor of the new third edition of the Canadian Gardener’s Guide.
In the Biggs-on-Figs segment, Steven chats with Jack Spruill of Spruill Farm in North Carolina about the community fig orchard on his farm.
