Mystery Plants and Garden Planning

Honest Home Podcast, Season 1

This week we tackle the perennial question: Do I let the landscaping grow in this first year I own my home, or do I change everything out right away?

We cover plant identification, landscaping tips, how to remove dangerous/problem thorny interlopers, and garden planning resources.

Resources:

CALL BEFORE YOU DIG!
Ask a Master Gardener, U of M Extension Service
DNR Invasive Species Resource
Permaculture
Minnesota Wildflowers
Our favorite travel mugs from Thermos!
Buckthorn identification from the Minnesota DNR site
