Welcome to the Country Garden Garden Talk Radio
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.
Celebrating 10 Years!

at Bakersfield College.
Join the Sultan of Sod and the Plant Professor LIVE at Garden Fest. They will celebrate the 10th anniversary of Garden Fest with a remote broadcast on KERN Garden Talk Radio 1180AM and 96.1 FM. Enjoy the day long Springtime gardening event with attractions for the entire family. Begin the day with your gardening questions answered by the Country Garden hosts, Dale Edwards and Lindsay Ono. Learn about gardening and grilling with the interactive Country Garden seminars happening through the morning.
In the afternoon watch the knives fly at the Renegade Ruckus Cook Off Competition sponsored by IKEA. This new event challenges 4 competitors in a live cooking competition complete with interactive commentary and cooking tips.
Visit the greenhouse for the micro-falls installation by Buck's Landscape Materials and Pond Shop. This is a very unique waterfall that is part of an aquaponic system. Aquaponics is an ecosystem combining a fish farm (aquaculture) with plant production (hydroponics). Join Mike and A.J. as they explain the tricks and secrets to designing the perfect water feature.
Garden Fest isn't complete without visiting the many artisan arts & craft booths, community informational booths, plant sales and club games carnival.
