COVID-19 & Cultivating Something Good | Diane Blazek | National Gardening Bureau COVID-19 is sweeping the nation and millions have turned homeward for the duration. Diane Blazek from the National Garden Bureau joins us with some great tips for getting started in the garden. She also talked about Victory Gardening 2.0. There was more than we could cover in one episode, so here are the individual blog posts: VICTORY GARDEN 2.0 CULTIVATE SOMETHING GOOD GARDENING WITH KIDS   THE NATIONAL GARDEN BUREAU... “Inspire.

Follow us throughout the year for more fun and inspiration!   Diane Blazek, Executive Director of All-America Selections® and National Garden Bureau For more than 30 years, Diane has been immersed in gardening both personally and professionally.  She brings a passion to the subject based on a history in the field of horticulture publishing as well as a love for gardening and culinary exploration. Growing up on a small family farm in northern Missouri, Diane spent years helping her parents plant, tend and harvest a large home vegetable garden. As the president and publisher at Ball Publishing for 15 years, she led the way in connecting the commercial side of the industry with consumers via the live focus groups called Consumer Buzz Live! Diane also managed Ball Publishing’s entry into consumer garden book publishing. Since December of 2009, Diane has been leading both All-America Selections and National Garden Bureau through an exciting period of growth as they establish themselves as inspirational resources in the minds of garden communicators, public gardens, growers, garden retailers and home gardeners. All-America Selections has doubled in size with the addition of trials for Vegetative Ornamentals and Herbaceous Perennials, an expanded website, more Display Gardens and an ever-increasing social media presence. National Garden Bureau has also more than doubled in size with the addition of new programs, social media, therapeutic garden grants and new membership categories. With both organizations, the connection to the consumer is of topmost importance and by using that connection, she provides direction and insights to the industry as well as to GardenComm, an organization for Garden Communicators where she serves as a National Director.

Cemetery Roses with Connie Hilker

Sunday Mar 08, 2020

    Connie Hilker has been a life long gardener, digging in dirt and watching plants grow. She is also a history geek who loves nothing more than to read or listen to a true story from the past. Years ago she was given a copy of Thomas Christopher’s book “In Search of Lost Roses”.  It told the stories of rose historians and rustlers, who visited old homes and cemeteries, collecting stories and cuttings. She dreamed, at that time, that she might become one of them. And, she did.    Connie works at Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, Va, to manage the rose collection. Hollywood was designed in 1847 specifically to be a garden cemetery. Garden cemeteries became popular starting in the mid-1800’s, as combination cemeteries, gardens, and public parks.   Find Connie on Instagram HERE.    Follow this link for Connie’s tips on taking rose cuttings.  LINK  _______________________________________________ THE SHOW: www.RoseChatPodcast.comListen to any episode anytime online for FREE!
