April 24, 2015

It's a double feature podcast. First Dave shares his tips on dealing with frost, followed by Trish giving her presentation on hanging baskets. If you're not dealing with frost, just skip about 25 minutes in to Trish's great talk about hanging baskets. You'll be inspired!

The podcast reminded me that I need to repot up my begonia boliviensis, unless a gopher has already gotten it.
The leaf shape is called angel wings, many of the begonias are called Angel Wing Begonias.
The shot you mentioned taken at UC Berkeley Botanical Garden was the first time I had seen this plant, it was super impressive.


This one is on my wish list now, the blooms are larger.

I almost turned it off as the music played and I was typing my next post but you had mentioned the blooper part so I left it running. Hilarious!

That plant was so impressive in person! Going out to dig now and see if I still have this in the ground. If not, I will be getting a new one!

I am glad you posted that picture and link. Will be going out shopping soon and will look for it.
I am kind of slow with technology. Don't know why I sit and just listen to the podcast when I can be scrolling around *Blush*

Anna, you do have to open a separate window to scroll around, you have to leave the podcast page open. I accidently clicked away from it once and had to start over again, or at least use the slider to find where I left off. Thumbs up
