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.
The guys discuss various aspects of roots and their relationship with different soil layers. Speaking of soil layers, did you know that during the winter months, microbial activity doesn’t stop - it just slows down!
Other topics include recycling mulched leaves in your lawn or meadow, preparing raspberries and strawberries for winter, and taking care not to bring pests into your garage or greenhouse!
Finally, the team answers some listener questions.
