If you have a garden and want to make it as low maintenance as possible then this podcast is for you.  As Landscape Designers and gardeners themselves, Joanne and Matthew think it is important and possible to have great gardens that are low maintenance and they want to help you make it happen.

This week we talk with new Author Julie Thompson - Adolf about her new book Starting & Saving Seeds: Grow the Perfect Vegetables, Fruits, Herbs and Flowers for Your Garden. Given that it is Fall right now, we decided to focus on Seed Saving. 

Julie shared with some tips on distinguishing seeds that are 'Open' pollinated, heirloom or hybrid. We also chat about the benefits of ensuring ' pure' seeds and why that may not matter as much to the home gardener. 

Starting & Saving Seeds: Grow the Perfect Vegetables, Fruits, Herbs and Flowers for Your Garden, does a wonderful job outlining all the necessary information for a large variety of plants in a clear and concise way for all gardeners.

We discuss tips for storing your seeds and learn all about Winter sowing. Tune in now to learn all about it.
