Good morning everyone,
Raining again here.
And not much gardening on the web today.
I did find the latest episode of Prairie Yard & Garden though, and this is what's in it...
Easter is the one holiday that jumps to a new date from year to year with very variable light and temperature conditions during that growing season. Host, Mary Holm visits with Chris Bergen, owner of Bergen’s Greenhouses to find out how growers, even with a moving target, get lilies and other spring holiday flowers to bloom right on time each year?
And Decouvertes Jardins has uploaded several short clips.
Enjoy your Sunday!
Dry and mild here at the moment, so it looks like a really nice day here in The Netherlands.
And this is what I found on the web.
MDR Garten is still out and about visiting gardens. This time they went to Normandy. There they visited Monet's garden in Giverny and a sculpture garden in Vascouil.
Jardins et Loisirs looks at plants for shade, and at the potager.
They also visited the Jardin Massart and the garden of an English couple in The Netherlands.
Featured plant is the Sorbus randaiensis.
Have a lovely day!

Kaffee oder Tee has a clip about testing your soil and fertilizing.
And I found a clip from ZDF about what to do with bulbs you buy in the sale at garden centres, or if you've still got them in the shed, and not in the soil.
I also found a sort of garden workshop from a farmers market in Coral Gables, Florida.
It was shown by the local TV station.
Have a great day!
More like autumn than winter here at the moment. Very mild, but wet and very strong winds, brrr.
Several garden programmes on the web though.

This program features turf sodding, rose diseases, an interview about spiders and turf research plots.

Next a clip from WDR about the latest new varieties and other novelties for the garden.
And especially for Verdun and other fans of Cornwall, a German programme from 2013 about Cornwall and its people.

German regional broadcaster WDR has a programme about regionally grown fruit and veg.
Servus TV has a programme about wildlife in cities.
And I found a clip from Kaffee oder Tee about plants that look well with bamboo.
I also saw that someone has uploaded the whole series of the Victorian Kitchen Garden, and the Warrtime Kitchen and Garden onto YouTube.
I don't think they will remain there for long, because of copyright issues, but I love both series!
Have a great day, whatever you're doing!
In a bit of a hurry, because I have to go somewhere and am late....
Quite a few gardening bits today.

The programme is also on YouTube.
Next a German clip about the medicinal properties of sage.
Kaffee oder Tee has a clip about apple trees with several varieties on one tree.

Liz Davey checks on the state of her tender perennials covered by baskets for winter protection, instructs how to do a germination test on old seeds, begins some pre-season planting, and cooks a hearty beef stew accompanied by corn-and-potato scones and caramel popcorn.
