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 why leaves change colors in the fall. They also discuss the benefits of leaving leaves on the lawn, using them for compost and to enhance the health of your meadow. Additionally, they talk about leaf mold (the product) and how it can be used in the garden. Finally, the duo wraps up with some listener questions.
