Excited to let you know the latest episode of the Mid-American Gardener Podcast is now available for streaming and download. This week, Victoria had a visit from Martie Alagna, one of our beloved panelists from the WILL-TV show. They talked about a multitude of things, including blue roses, Zinnias, hydrangeas, what to plant under pine trees, pruning Arctic Fire Red Twig Dogwoods, and growing persimmon trees in Illinois.
