Mid-American Gardener: Episode 23

November 29, 2018

‘Tis the season!

Get into the holiday spirit with the latest episode of the Mid-American Gardener Podcast. Host Victoria Shepherd sits down with University of Illinois Horticulture Educator Kelly Allsup to discuss easy things we can all do to make our homes a little brighter during the festive season.

And good news for poinsettia-lovers with pets, the plants are apparently not as dangerous as many think! In fact, you won’t find that plant listed on College of Veterinary website, and the ASPCA poison center says this: “Irritating to the mouth and stomach, sometimes causing vomiting, but generally over-rated in toxicity.” 

If you have questions (and include photos if you have them), we’ve got you covered. Send questions via email to yourgarden@gmail.com, or post on Facebook, or leave us a voicemail at (217) 300-8224. Who knows, we just might look to include them in a future show or podcast.

And make sure you follow us on Instagram.

As always, thanks for listening!
