Susan Lyell Young - Rose Fever In Nashville!

January 28, 2015

What a delightful conversation this was! Susan Lyell Young was a perennial gardener in Nashville, TN when she rescued a bagged Mr. Lincoln rose from Kmart. That was  three years ago and since then she has fallen in love with roses and collected more than 250 mostly vintage and antique roses. She particularly loves the vintage polyanthas and pre-WWII hybrid teas, noisettes, and hybrid musks. Ms. Young gardens on an urban city lot of 11/0th an acre and is currently looking for some land in the country so that she might grow a proper garden. When not tending to the roses Ms. Young is an avid reader of rose history and culture and we couldn't be happier to have her as our guest this evening. 

Hear her favorite roses as well as some growing tips and insights on growing the worlds' most beloved flower.

Coffee for Roses - C. L. Fornari

November 5, 2014
00:0000:00

Rose Chat Podcast welcomes C. L. Fornari - "The Garden Lady" author of Coffee for Roses.  


Word-of-mouth may be a great way to learn about some products, but word-of-mouth gardening tips can be a very bad idea. The age-old practice of passing along gardening tips and tricks is no guarantee you will get a good result...it might even do the opposite.  In her new book, garden expert C. L. Fornari looks at 71 common garden practices and uncovers the truth behind the lore.  Do marigolds keep the bugs out of the veggie patch? Will rusty nails turn hydrangeas blue? With humor and affection, she goes back in time to sort out the good, the bad and the just plain silly...and tells us why. COFFEE FOR ROSES combines gardening history and expert advice into one useful, time- and money-saving package. The author’s award-winning full color photography is throughout.  

The 20-30 Something Garden Guide | Dee Nash

October 8, 2014

Dee Nash joins us to talk about her latest book: The 20-30 Something Garden Guide. 

"Urban farming is the hot new movement sweeping the country: growing food closer to where we live, whether it’s on a condo deck, in a backyard or in a community garden. The 20/30-Something Garden Guide gives that busy, mostly urban, cohort a fun, non-intimidating introduction to the basics of gardening. These are the folks who want to know where their food comes from, and they’re hip to the importance of good health and the environment. They may not have a lot of free time or change in their pockets, but if they could find a no-fuss Gardening 101 that spoke their language and gave achievable goals, they’d go for it. This is that book: high graphic appeal, fully illustrated, step-by-step projects and essential tips. Garden expert Dee Nash divides her book into four types and sizes of gardens, starting with “Farming Your Patio, Balcony or Deck,” and giving incremental goals for the first year, and the second and third. With this guide as a basic roadmap, new gardeners can be as creative and out-of-the-box as they want. It's theirs to enjoy."
