LH 83: Important Garden Lessons

Straight talk’n advice from 8 top gardening experts

Wouldn’t you love to pick the brain of your favorite garden authors and experts?

You know…Ask them about their top garden advice and get their perspective.

It would be invaluable, right?

Well, you’re in luck – because THAT’S what this episode is all about!

I reached out to 8 of my garden expert friends and asked each of them to answer this question…

If you could go back in time, what would you tell your younger gardener-self?

In other words…

What do you know NOW, that you wished you knew THEN?

And ya know what?

I got 8 completely different answers!

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Each expert’s top piece of gardening advice
  • What they each think is the most important thing to know
  • What type of mindset should you have to garden
  • When should you ask for help
  • And when should you wing-it

I hope you love this one!
