It’s that time of year again—the much-anticipated listener question-and-answer episode. Carol and Danielle look forward to this special episode (sometimes TWO episodes) because it allows them to offer real-life advice concerning the plant and garden-design problems that are troubling all of you out there in the podcast universe. This time, we got a slew of great questions via email and social media, and we’re going to do our best to get through as many as possible. The inquiries sought advice on planting under trees and attracting hummingbirds, and asked for info about what garden tasks we’re tackling during the dog days of summer. Tune in to see if we fielded your question, or if someone else’s problem is something you can relate to.
