It's our annual You Bet Your Garden
Christmas Spectacular! This year, we are listening to some of our favorite interviews and musical selections from previous years. Jane Pepper of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society reveals the secret origin of the holiday poinsettia, Rosie Lerner of Perdue University explains how to care for Christmas cactus, butterfly expert Rick Mikula shows us how to decorate trees with live butterflies, Paul Myer from the Morris Arboretum helps us pick the most colorful hollies for our winter landscape, and Judith Benn Hurley talks about using frankincense and myrrh for their botanical benefits. Plus, Mike McGrath will read one of his special holiday stories. And of course, lots of great holiday tunes from our musical director Kenn Kweder and his Reindeer Band!
