You Bet Your Garden
11am - 12pm
You Bet Your Garden offers fiercely organic advice to gardeners far and wide: Tips on caring for plants, fending off pests, wrestling with weeds, dealing with disease, and all the other fun things we outdoor enthusiasts enjoy so much.
Join host Mike McGrath as he slays slugs, defeats deer, whacks weeds, mispronounces Latin words, and saves gardens across the nation every week on You Bet Your Garden, an hour of horticultural hijinks that takes a breezy, light-hearted, and sometimes (OK, frequently) manic approach to the topic of gardening.
Host Mike McGrath was Editor-in-Chief of Organic Gardening magazine from 1991 through 1997 and is the author of many books, including The Kitchen Garden Box (Quirk Publishing; 2009); Mike McGrath's Book of Compost (Sterling Publishers; 2006); Kitchen Garden A to Z (Abrams; 2004) and You Bet Your Tomatoes (Rodale; 2002, and reissued in a brand new edition by Plain White Press in 2009).
Mike is also the Garden Editor for WTOP News Radio in Washington, D.C., a post he has held for more than a decade. He has served as columnist and Contributing Editor for Greenprints magazine ("The Weeder's Digest") since 1997, and was the garden expert for the Saturday morning edition of The Today Show on NBC, appearing monthly from 1993 through 1997. During his time at Organic Gardening, Mike's major exhibits won four consecutive "Best of Show" awards at the prestigious Philadelphia Flower Show (1994-1997).
