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.
A letter to our Country Garden Fans:
It has been over twenty years that Dale and I have been broadcasting the Country Garden Radio program. As we retire from radio broadcasting, we want to thank all of our loyal listeners who have made this program a part of your family. Thank you for your many calls and questions that made our program fun and entertaining over the years. Thank you to our sponsors and supporters over the years who helped us to educate and laugh over our years on this radio program.
We want to thank our special co-hosts who dropped in to give us their expert advice. Thanks to Kathy from Robby's Nursery; The Murray Family - Steve, Vicki and Steven and their staff from Murray Family Farms; Susie and Steve at Bolles Nursery; Mike , Peggy and Buck at Buck's Landscape Materials & Pond Shop; Our great producer Steven, Dave and the rest of the staff from KERN radio and our many guests over the years who helped make this a successful gardening program.
We also want to thank our families, my wife Marie and Dale's wife Brenda, plus our kids and our friends for letting us take our Saturdays to entertain you on the fun of gardening.
As we part our ways, Dale will be using his weekends to enjoy a little more life. He will still be working at Old River Sod.
I will be continuing to teach and outreach for Bakersfield College, the California Landscape Contractors Association and with the Tree Foundation of Kern.
Myself with some of our Country Garden Friends will continue to maintain this website and answer your questions. So stay tuned for more news in the near future.
We'll see you at Robby's Nursery and Bolles Nursery for our final broadcasts.
And don't forget , you can see me at Bakersfield College's Garden Fest on Saturday, April 18th.
Thank you for the fun and the memories, and keep on Gardening!
