Welcome to our weekly podcast with longtime Anchorage Daily News garden writer and author Jeff Lowenfels and co-host Jonathan White. Think of it as a companion to Jeff’s weekly columns and his popular series of books.
This week Jeff and Jonathan talk about the importance of soil microbes in gardening. They touch on planting garlic, tulips, and daffodils, but emphasize the need for early preparation.
Additionally, they discuss how microbes help with plant health, nutrient cycling, and disease control. As always, the team wraps up with some listener questions!
