Mid-American Gardener

Seed Starting Tips & Insect Mating Habits


This week, Phil Nixon and Kay Carnes stop by the studio to help us get ready for Spring!

Resident Bug Expert Phil tells us all we would ever want to know about the mating habits of some creepy crawlies he brought in.

It's fundraising week, and Liz and John drop by to tell you ways you can help make great shows like "Mid-American Gardener" possible, and ways you can even pick up some exciting gardening gifts! And Kay shows us some tips for getting your seeds started this Spring...

and later, John even puts this knowledge to the test and shows you that anyone can pick up helpful tips!


As always, if there’s a question you’d like to ask one of our panelists, please send us an email at yourgarden@gmail.com com, or you can find us on Facebook and Instagram
