Welcome to the Down the Garden Path Radio Show and Podcast. We discuss down to earth tips and advice for your plants, gardens and landscapes.

As landscape designers, Joanne Shaw and Matthew Dressing think it is important and possible to have great gardens that are low maintenance.

You can listen live at www.realityradio101.com on Monday’s at 7 pm EST. or subscribe to download this show and past episodes from your favourite podcast app.
