Expand Your Plant Selections
Barbara feels that although ones climate may be different, the basics of horticulture are the same. For example, it doesn't matter where one lives, one needs to amend the soil. If someone is interested in growing some of the plants they've seen in this show they could try putting them in the coolest part of their garden. Barbara may grow things in the sun here, elsewhere try the coolest areas of your garden. Try new plants, you may be surprised.
