We're already experiencing some of the intense heat and extended dry spells we usually associate with late July and early August, broken-up by heavy downpours that can temporarily swamp container gardens and flower beds. Gardening in our climate can be a challenge, the trick is choosing the proper plants and knowing what they need to stay healthy and to grow.

Joining us to answer your gardening and landscape questions are Peter Huttinger, co-owner of Homeadow Song Farm and director of the Community Garden Program at Turner Farm; and, David Koester, Campbell County Horticulture extension agent.
