In the Garden with Ron Wilson
Gardener Ron Wilson broadcasts a radio show every Saturday and Sunday morning that provides great tips, interesting interviews and answers questions from callers with gardening questions.
Although Wilson's show reaches a nationwide audience, he broadcasts from Cincinnati so he is very knowledgeable about the climate and growing conditions in our part of the country.
Locally, you can hear In the Garden with Ron Wilson on WVHU (AM 800 and 1600) or listen online on the WVHU webpage or Ron Wilson's homepage.
In addition to being able to listen to his show online, he has a lot of great tips archived on his website and blog.
During these cold winter days we are all thinking about springtime. One of the best ways of directing our thoughts to gardening is to browse the seed catalogs. If you are like us, we always look forward to the arrival of the seed catalogs in our mailbox.
A great source of general and specialized garden catalogs can be found at gardenlist.com.
