The Best Plants for Ohio Gardens

When the weather isn't cooperating as much as we'd like, what can we do to still maintain a beautiful garden? We'll talk about combating this unusually gloomy spring weather with a cheery spring garden. How you can maintain a "nonstop" garden to enjoy all-year-round, with guest Debra Knapke. Debra is on the faculty at Columbus State Community College where she teaches about Herbaceous Plants, Specialty Gardens and Sustainable Landscape Practices and Design. She is the co-author of 5 books on gardening and she’s penned articles for local and state-wide newsletters, and for Garden Gate and Fine Gardening magazines. She recommends the book below as a wonderful guide to maintaining your own garden. Support WOSU now, and receive it as a gift for your donation!
