The Zesty Garden - August 27

A Seed is a Seed is a Seed? Not all are created equal. Some won’t last a day without staying moist while most keep out moisture as they remain in stasis for days, months or even years. A seed can be thought of as a baby plant inside a box, with its lunch. Some have not touched a bit of their lunch while others have consumed everything, including the thermos! On Petals and Prose today, Helen Cannon reads about how seeds germinate, especially the avocado. But first we’ll have a conversation with USU Extension Fruit Specialist Brent Black. Have you ever considered using a container to grow fruit? Then we’ll hear from Grant Cardon on the state of our soils. Why are they the way they are? He’ll have some important information on the use of chelated iron.
