GardenDC Podcast Episode 165: Gardening and the Weather

In this episode of GardenDC: The Podcast about Mid-Atlantic Gardening, we chat with garden writer Margaret Roach, all about gardening and the weather. The plant profile is on Hardy Banana and we share what's going on in the garden as well as some upcoming local gardening events in the What's New segment. We close out with the Last Word on Growing Container Strawberries by Christy Page at the Food Gardening Network.
