Mid-American Gardener Podcast: Episode 11


Episode 11 of the Mid-American Gardener Podcast is now available!

This week, Kent Miles—owner of Illinois Willows, a specialty cut flower grower located in the Champaign-Urbana community—joins host Victoria Shepherd to talk about his favorite subject: Flowers. Victoria and Kent cover a wide range of topics of the flowering kind, but in particular, they discuss hydrangeas, knockout roses, cutting flowers, Icelandic poppies, sunflowers, and willows.

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.

Thanks, as always, for listening!
