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 of this article by Joannabanana:

Trish, you said you didn't like the coir liners because they dry out so fast, in that article, Joanna recommends lining them with a heavy plastic, this is what I plan to try this year.

I was thinking the same thing. I do that and it works really well especially for the ones under the trees. I know some gardeners who put diapers as liners.
