Welcome to The Country Garden Central California's garden talk radio. We will talk about everything from turf to trees, plants to ponds, okra to oleander, or anything that you want to talk about. The Country Garden is hosted by Dale Edwards, The Sultan of Sod from Old River Sod and Lindsay Ono, The Plant Professor from Bakersfield College.
This program is designed to inform, educate and assist our listeners with America's number one hobby, Gardening.
Join Dale and Lindsay with their friends from the nursery and landscape industry who will help answer your questions. Learn about what's new in the plant world. Learn about new ways to grow plants in the yard, in the greenhouse, in the home or even on the home. Find out about preparing the soil for your plants or even growing without soil. Learn about the wonders of the outdoor environment. I wonder if it's going to live, I wonder if it's going to die? Have all your wonderful questions answered by the Country Garden Pros.
