Mid-American Gardener

Mid-American Gardner - April 2022


This month, Kay Carnes returns to the studio for the first time since the pandemic, and brings along some of her favorite seeds to get us started this planting season. Also, resident "bug guy" Phil Nixon stops by to update us on the progress of his bonzai tree. Panelists John Bodensteiner also joins us on Skype to give us some tips on transplanting your plants this Spring.


If you have questions (send photos if you have them!), we’ve got you covered. Send questions to yourgarden@gmail.com, or check out our Facebook page and feel free to leave your questions there! We will try to get it answered on an upcoming show or web segment!

Plus, you can follow us on Instagram for more exciting content!
