The Secrets of a Thriving Summer Garden
This week on Mid-American Gardener, Shane and Chuck visit us in the studio to share their secrets on how to keep your summer garden happy and healthy!
First, Chuck gives us valuable insights into the ideal growing conditions and maintenance techniques for growing both asparagus and rhubarb. Shane then offers one of his favorite alternatives to hostas: brunnera. This perennial adds variety, texture, and color to shade gardens. He also explains chlorosis, the causes and symptoms, and more importantly, ways to amend and correct your soil to ensure healthy foliage. We also discuss the best lightweight, durable garden hoses.
Whether you're a seasoned green thumb or just starting out, tune in this week for helpful tips and lighthearted conversation. As always, if you’ve got any questions for our panelists or suggestions for gardens or greenhouses that we should visit, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org com, or you can find us on Facebook and Instagram.
