Zesty Garden- May 16

May 20, 2013

One of the best ways to ensure that your cool season lawn gets through the hot summer is using the best watering practices and having a healthy lawn.  This includes watering deeply and less often, and mowing high. But there are also other types of cool season grasses that can also help your lawn be more drought tolerant. These include tall and fine fescues. Today on The Zesty Garden, we’ll look at the latest in these and other “best practices” with USU Water Conservation and Turfgrass Specialist, Kelly Kopp. But first on the program, we’ll talk with a dutch bulb expert whose family has been selling bulbs for almost 400 years. 

At one time, tulips were worth more than gold and were used as currency. Imagine buying a home for three tulips! Henk Stuifbergen from the Stuifbergen Bulb Export Company will give you some tips on how to best grow your own tulips, hyacinths, and daffodils, and why Holland just grows tulips so well.
