In this week’s episode of Down the Garden Path, we’re looking ahead to 2020!

Each week on Down the Garden Path, professional landscape designers Joanne Shaw and Matthew Dressing discuss down-to-earth tips and advice for your plants, gardens and landscapes. We do our best to bring you interesting, relevant and helpful topics to help you keep your garden as low maintenance as possible.

Looking Ahead to 2020 with a New Themed Format

In the leadup to Down the Garden Path's five-year anniversary show last November, we looked into ways to serve you better in 2020. One of the biggest issues we tackle head-on this year stems from the frustration we felt when we'd run out of time doing a deep dive on a topic. To address this, we've organized 2020's Down the Garden Path shows into a more structured format. Moving forward, we've planned each month out into themes.

For example, in February, we'll focus on houseplants. In March, we'll discuss seed-starting and growing veggies. And then in April, well focus on lawn care -- from lawn care 101 to artificial turf and other lawn alternatives. You get the idea!

Also in this week's episode:

  • We offer advice on Amaryllis bulbs now that they have finished blooming. Learn what to do to care for them if you want them to rebloom next year.
  • Are you considering getting a landscape design or doing any landscaping this year? Now is the perfect time to reach out to a landscape designer in your area. You can also reach out to us here on Down the Garden Path.

We appreciate that you tune into our show each week for advice and guidance and hope you'll enjoy our new format.
