Show #34/2108. Plants That Look Good Fall And Winter.
Try Different Or Unusual Plants
In this show we discussed a number of plants that have multiple seasons of interest, plants with multiple uses and plants that have interesting stories behind them, the medicinal plants and their history are an example. We've
discussed plants that attract wildlife. It's exciting to have the sound of chirping birds in the garden, enjoying the garden just like we do. We've discussed edible plants that in addition to their wonderful form and flower
offer edible fruit at the end of the season, which is just 1 more treat to have at the end of fall. All of this enhances the experience in the garden. Eric believes that gardening is richer with diversity and that in turn makes
gardening more rewarding.
