Welcome to The Daily Gardener.
I want to send a special shout out to the listeners of the Still Growing Podcast - my original long-format podcast that began in 2012.  Welcome SGP listeners! I’m glad you found the show.
What is the Daily Gardener?

The Daily Gardener is a weekday show.

It will air every day Monday - Friday 

(I’m taking weekends off for rest, family, fun, & gardening!)
The show will debut April 1, 2019. The tagline for the show is thoughts & brevities to inspire growth.

Shows are between 5 - 10 minutes in length.

The format for the show begins with a brief monologue followed by brevities. 

The Brevities segment is made up of 5 main topic areas.

1. Commemoration: Here, I dig up fascinating people, places, and events in horticulture and share them with you. This is the “On This Day” #OTD portion of the show helping you feel more grounded and versed o n the most enchanting stories from the history of gardening.
2. Unearthing Written Work: This is made up of poems, quotes, journal entries, and other inspiring works pertaining to gardening 
3. Book Recommendations: These are the literary treasures that will help you build a garden library, strengthen your gardening know-how and inspire you.
4. Garden Chores: A Daily Garden To-Do; improve your garden one actionable tip at a time
5. Something Sweet: This segment is dedicated to “reviving the little botanic spark” in your heart - to paraphrase botanist Alexander Garden; to add more joy to the pursuit of gardening.

The show sign-off is: "For a happy, healthy life: garden every day"

There are a few easter eggs in the show for Still Growing listeners. I still start the show with - "Hi there, everyone" and I end the show by saying the show is "produced in lovely, Maple Grove, Minnesota”.

The music for the show is called “The Daily Gardener Theme Song” originally dubbed “Bach’s Garden". I wrote it on Garageband. It will be available as a ringtone for your smartphone through the show’s Patreon page.

If you enjoy the show, please share it with your garden friends. I would so appreciate that.

I realize you are very excited to get going in your own garden.

But don't forget to schedule some time this spring to visit other gardens.

The gardens of friends, neighbors, or public gardens can provide you with inspiration
and teach you something new - even when you didn't think you'd learn anything.

Merriam-Webster gives the following synonyms for the word perennial:
abiding, enduring, perpetual, undying
Those terms can give gardeners unrealistic expectations for their perennials.
They're not eternal.
They will eventually part ways with your garden.
But, for as long as they can, your perennials will make...

How close are your earliest bloomers to your front door?
Your crocus, snowdrops, iris, daffodils, tulips, forsythia, daphnes, and magnolias.
When I redid my front garden last year, the designer had put all my earliest bloomers right near the front porch and walk.  When I asked her reasoning, she reminded me of our...

Today I learned how botanists used to say "hello" to each other.
In the 1800's and 1900's, a common way for botanists to introduce themselves, often from the other side of the world, was to send each other plant specimens as the foundation for developing a relationship.
When it comes to friendship, plants are...

I recently had a gardener ask me about the first herb I'd ever grown.
That would be chives.
Chives, like many herbs, are so easy to grow. Plus, you get the cute purple puffball blossoms.
I had a chef friend show me how she liked to cut off the flower. Then, she snipped a little triangle off of the bottom where...
