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.

On this show, we try to help educate you seasonally to manage your garden and landscapes, engage with Garden Authors and educate ourselves right along with you as we learn together about interesting topics on the environment. 

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.
