Episode 9 is of the Mid-American Gardener Podcast is now available!

This week, Victoria sits down with former University of Illinois horticulture educator Jennifer Nelson to discuss a wide range of gardening topics. In this episode, you will learn more about herbicides and broadleaf weed killer, rabbits and voles, smooth brome and creeping Charlie, phlox, re-potting, snowdrop bulbs, and roses.

And if you haven’t done so already, there is still time to sign up for the amazing bus tour available as a thank you to Friends of WILL. With this fabulous trip, you’ll get to stop at Alwerdt's Garden Center, gain admittance to the 79-acre Missouri Botanical Garden, a 30 minute tram ride, lunch at Sassafras restaurant, time to explore the gardens, plus interaction with a Master Gardener. 

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 here, 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!
