Apr 15, 2020 Season 2 Episode 23
Carol Michel, Dee Nash

Dee and Carol discuss a variety of topics including

Flowers:  It's all about Dianthus this week.
Check out these dianthus flowers from Proven Winners. Ask for them at your favorite independent garden center or buy them online.  Find a friend with 'Bath's Pink' dianthus to share or if you can't find them at your garden center, Bluestone Perennials has them. Several varieties of Dianthus are also All-Americas Selections!

Veggies:  The National Garden Bureau encourages us to plant a Victory Garden 2.0. If you need more help, listen to our previous podcast episode How to Grow A Basic Summer Vegetable Garden

On the Bookshelf: We are still reading Margery Fish! This week it's Cottage Garden Flowers, originally published in 1961.

Support not only your local garden centers, but also your local independent bookstores. Order from Bookshop.org, which was set up to help support independent bookstores.  

Two ways to shop… 

  1. Click on “find a bookstore” and find your local bookstore. Then any book you buy during that session, the store will get the profits from it. They will tell you straight-away how much the bookstore earned from your purchase.
  2. Or, just start shopping.  The profits will go into a fund that they will use to support independent bookstores in some way.  

Our local bookstores include: Wild Geese Bookshop in Franklin, Indiana and Best of Books in Edmond, Oklahoma.
