Today's episode will cover the different gardening methods: conventional soil VS straw bale gardening VS hydroponics VS aquaponics VS aeroponics. I will cover the differences between the different types, the Pro's and the Con's to each type. The goal of today's episode will be to inform the novice/first-time gardener of their choices and hopefully push them in the right direction.

For Spring 2015, David Austin introduces four new English Roses to U.S. and Canadian gardeners. All four feature classic Austin rose attributes – a romantic old-fashioned flower form, heady fragrance and masses of blooms all season long. Michael Marriott is our guest on today's broadcast. He's the chief rosarian at David Austin roses and we'll be chatting about this exceptional collection of roses.
“We expect gardeners will be excited by these appealing English Roses,” says Austin’s senior rosarian Michael Marriott. “Each has irresistible qualities, the kind that lead gardeners to discover they have ‘just the spot’ for this!”
Available by mail order from www.davidaustinroses.com,
‘The Lady Gardener’ – This is an intensely fragrant, apricot-colored rose that’s astoundingly floriferous, nearly burying itself in perfume and flowers from early summer to frost and has added it to their list of Most Fragrant English Roses.
The Albrighton Rambler’ – Typically a rambler rose delivers a spectacular show, but blooms only once a season. ‘The Albrighton Rambler’ blooms repeatedly all season long.
Thomas à Becket’ – Whereas Austin’s roses often recall an Old Rose in look, this rose is closer to a species rose, being more natural and shrubby in growth. The large red flowers are shallowly cupped, opening as informal rosettes, with petals that quickly reflex as the flowers age.
Maid Marion’ – This 2015 North American introduction has everything gardeners prize in David Austin's English Roses. The buds open in rounded cups with large outside petals.
It's a first! Donna Butler is going out in the field for this show. She will be on location with our guest. Mitch Mayes is the owner of Louisiana Nursery Home and Garden located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Mitch has been doing a garden show on 1150 AM for 20 years and is a treasure trove of knowledge! We'll ask him lots of questions about proper watering techniques for your garden. Check out their website: http://louisiananursery.com
