A chat with Anthony Dominguez. 


In This Garden Chat:

We are talking with gardener and chemist Anthony Dominguez from HyKreations about foliar feeding our gardens. Besides providing the respiration for our plants, the foliage can be a direct method for getting nutrients into the plant. A virtually immediate foliar feeding of nutrients can give your gardens the boost they need to improve vitality and growth. Yet with limitations of temperatures and avoiding flowers, the biggest gardening question we get asked is how and when do you fertilize vegetable gardens? 

On the last Tuesday every month we host The Urban Farm Garden Chats where Greg Peterson has a relaxed conversation in a Zoom room with a special guest to cover useful gardening topics, and they answer questions from the live listening audience.

683: Pollinators & Wildflowers.

A Chat with an Expert on Seeds.

In This Podcast:

This is the May 2022 Seed Saving Class with Bill McDorman discussing planting wildflowers.  A diverse and integrated garden requires many different elements. Top on that list are pollinators and wildflowers. If you have a robust flower component to your cultivated gardens, so much of the extra workload is handled by these workhorses as they attract beneficial bugs and increase harvests. Learn how to plant wildflowers and how they impact the beauty and functionality of your garden or farm and create healthy eco-systems that are balanced and regenerative. At least ten times a year we have a live Seed Saving Class. 

Join the class! Register anytime for the next event.
