Zesty Garden-March 28

One of the most important tasks for managing woody plants, including fruiting and ornamental trees and shrubs, will take place soon. This Thursday on the zesty garden, USU extension entomologist Diane Alston will talk about the practice of using dormant sprays to reduce or prevent the insect outbreaks that can devastate flower and fruit production in your garden. We’ll also look at those insects that carry diseases to your vegetables, and how you can control them.

Zesty Garden- March 21

  How do you plant a garden when there’s snow on the ground one day and it’s raining the next? It’s important to know not only the makeup of your soil, but also how warm it must be before you can plant. On this week’s show, Dr. Teryl Roper from USU’s plant, soils and climate department will help you discover the secrets to timing your garden plantings.

Zesty Garden- March 14

This Thursday on The Zesty Garden we’ll explore early spring planting issues. While temperatures have risen and are melting the snow, how do you know when it’s time to plant? How can you speed up the warming of the soil so you can get that first crop of peas even earlier? Dan Drost, USU Extension Vegetable Specialist is Bryan Earl’s guest for the hour. Join them Thursday at 10:00 for The Zesty Garden.
