Welcome to the first Garden Time podcast. Last week we finished up 17 years of Garden Time TV shows. It was wonderful and heart warming to hear from many of you about the TV show and how it helped you become better gardeners. We are taking a break from full time video work, but we are also dipping our toes into podcasting. Twice a month we will be posting a podcast about some topics that we have talked about, or have been talked about in the industry.

In this first podcast we introduce you to Ryan and Judy and they talk about their backgrounds. They are not just great people, they have deep histories and educational credentials in the horticultural industry. They know their stuff! Then we talk about plant lists. There are local and national groups that introduce plant lists every year. Even labeling some plants as ‘plants of the year’. We will look at a couple of these lists. How useful are these lists and what should you look out for when using them to pick plants for your garden.

Here are a couple of links to the plant lists we referred to in the podcast.

National Garden Bureau – Year of Plants - https://ngb.org/year-of-plants-2022/

Great Plant Picks - https://www.greatplantpicks.org/

Here is one list we found after we recorded our podcast that contains waterwise plants for the Pacific Northwest of the US - Waterwise plant guide - https://www.regionalh2o.org/sites/default/files/Waterwise%20Plant%20Guide%202020.pdf

You can also find many other lists on the internet by just plugging in ‘plant lists’ in Google. Look for plants that will do well in your area and/or zone.

We hope you find the discussion fun and entertaining.
