Little kids have Christmas. Gardeners have spring. To us, this is the most wonderful time of the year. And with the start of the season come those inevitable trips to the nursery. In an effort not to max out their credit cards, this spring Carol and Danielle are making shopping lists of plants that they will be on the hunt for. These species are going to fill a particular need or want in their gardens, and they might do the same for you. Listen today to see what our hosts are dreaming of adding to their beds and borders.
