December's Northern Gardening is about "Bee Friendly Gardens for Native Bees".  Host Diane Booth is joined by Elaine Evans, U of M Extension educator and bee researcher. Elaine has written a practical guide to raise local bumblebees and will discuss how to encourage native bees to inhabit your garden. 

Later in the program, there's a discussion about great gifts for the holidays for that gardener in your life. 

WTIP’s Northern Gardening airs the second Thursday of the month, from 7 to 8 p.m. – and is rebroadcast the following Saturday from 6 to 7 a.m.
