Cold winter days are a good time for garden planning...

January's edition of Northern Gardening explores the ‘Cold-Hardy Plant List’ developed by the MN Department of Agriculture - specifically, how they determine what plants are on the list and whether local nurseries play a role in its development.

Hosts Diane Booth and Joan Farnam are joined by Steven Shimek, plant health specialist with the MN Department of Agriculture, and Rene Swadburg of The Blue Moose in Grand Marais.

The Cold Hardiness List for 2020 can be found here.

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.
