Plantrama - plants, landscapes, & bringing nature indoors

Dec 20, 2018

In this December episode Ellen and C.L. talk about nematodes (harmful and beneficial), and the amazing sex life of the avocado flower. C.L. gives her opinion about putting small berms in a landscape, and tells a story that her berm rant sparked from someone in her audience. We answer Ellen’s question about gardening when high…in an upper altitude, that is.


:27 Did You Know? What the heck are nematodes, and should gardeners care?

6:00 Eat/Drink/Grow: All about avocados. A pretty cool sex change for the flowers, and a fun houseplant to grow from a pit.

15:20 Story time: C.L. tells a story about garden design and berms, plus how this sparked a tale from an audience member that made us laugh.

18:40 Love Letters and Questions: Ellen wrote about growing plants when you’re in a Rocky Mountain high.

This small berm at the end of a driveway really looks like a grave!
