Elephant ears, pitcher plants and spider mites, Oh My!
We've all heard of the venus fly trap, but did you know there are other carniverous plants?  Panelist Phil Nixon shows off his personal bog loving pitcher plant and tells us how to keep them alive and healthy. This week we talk soil tests, hedge apples and whether or not those wooly worms can predict the weather.  

Also, Tinisha shares some photos from her neck of the woods!  If you missed last night's show, we've got you covered!

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

Plus, you can now follow us on Instagram!
