Fun show recorded at OSU-OKC! Great guests of Cody Yount of OSU-OKC Farmers Market, Dan Wagner and Veronica Mills from Precure Nursery in OKC, and Denise Welker, Greenhouse and Gardens Manager at OSU-OKC Horticulture.
Cody gave us an update on the farmers market for the week. Dan and Veronica share a wealth of knowledge on plant quality, landscape design, and landscape installation and establishment challenges. Veronica and Denise talk about our Plants for a Purpose segment on evergreen landscape plants, and Denise gives an update on what's happening in the gardens this week.
Densely nutrituous all about horticulture! Hope you enjoy!
On this show, we have a roundtable with Angie, Cody Yount, and Jamie Ashmore.
Cody is the new Farmers Market manager at OSU-OKC, and shares his path to get there and what is going on at the wonderful market at OSU-OKC.
Jamie shares some tips for what to do in your gardens in February. There is plenty to do to get ready for the growing season!
In this show we are honored to speak with Marjorie Moesel, who is a great leader in the horticulture industry and horticulture for youth in the Oklahoma City Metro area. Marjorie grows interior plants at her company Moesel's Hort Haven, which is at the same location as American Plant Products. Would be hard to find anyone with a richer background in growing plants as Marjorie, and we had the chance to talk with her a bit about growing plants for interiors.
It was a real treat to have Victor Goetz with us, who is an owner and horticulturalist at Calverts Plant Interiors in Oklahoma City. Calverts is the gold standard for design of interior plant scapes and interior plant maintenance. I learned a lot from our interview with Victor (being an outdoor plant person myself!) and hope you do as well. He covers a lot about their approach to design, their general philosophy of their business, what they have to offer, and trends in the industry.
Enjoy the show!
Again we find a couple of folks who are outstanding at what they do in horticulture! In this show, we talk with Adam Sarmiento of Eco Landscaping, a company that specializes in working with native plants and native systems to create wonderful landscapes. Taking sort of a high concept and making it applicable to daily use in the landscape, great work! Check out their website at www.ecogardenok.com
Our other great guest in this show is Ryan Ochsner, of the Urban Forestry Department in Edmond, OK. Ryan's department is cutting edge in working with planning and care of both the native and planted tree population in Edmond. They work with the parks and city maintenance, homeowners, and land developers to work toward a great balance of conservation while allowing for the growth that is happening in Edmond. An awesome example of how a governmental agency can truly have a daily difference in the lives of the citizens. The Edmond Urban Forestry information can be found at www.edmondok.com/trees
Hope you enjoy the show!
We covered a lot on this show! Annie and Angie talked about preparing long term for the ice storms we have in Oklahoma, and a bit about recovery from ice damage as well.
Freddie Hill, a master gardener specializing in cacti and succulents, joined us to share his amazing knowledge. It is a speciality sort of growing, and we thank Freddie for sharing his knowledge and passion for growing cacti and succulents.
In the last part of the show, Annie and Angie talked a bit more about requirements for indooor plants. It's really not that hard, but it's very helpful to know where your plants come from, what the pests may be, and what type of water, light, and humidity may affect their health.
Fun show, hope you enjoy!
- In this show we feature the wonderful horticulturists David Gerken and Hugh Stout.
David is an Associate Professor at OSU-OKC teaching in the Turf Management area of the horticulture degree program. He is accomplished in turf management from both a professional and educational standpoint. David is one of the best resources for turf management information both for grasses and irrigation in the central Oklahoma area.
Many concepts that are used in professional turf maintenance can be applied to homeowners to save water and take care of your turf.
Hugh Stout joins us to talk about the Oklahoma Horticulture Society, which is a wonderful group and a great resource for a monthly meeting of like minded hort folks to share a treasure of horticulture knowledge. You will want to know more about daylilies and irises from hearing Hugh talk on this show!
I know after talking with Hugh that there are more daylilies and irises in my future...so beautiful and so low maintenance.
Hope you enjoy!
This little recording is one of those things where you think...we should do this more often! We have been very focused at school taking care of sending info out to students and helping students...then Annie busy at her work with her programs...then we are both busy bringing the best content that we can bring to you as listeners, that we never really thought of just doing a spot promoting our classes at OSU-OKC.
Our producer, Dan the Man, set an impromtu chat about our wonderful classes for spring to some music and I kind of love it.
Give us a call at OSU-OKC if you are passionate about horticulture education. It's what we do.
This was our last show of 2016, broadcast on our radio affiliates on New Year's Eve morning. We had some thoughts about our year in horticulture in 2016, and had some fun looking forward to 2017 with some football analogies to the "big game" and the game plan of the year. So, listen and enjoy...and be sure to have your own game plan set for your horticulture adventures in 2017!
We will be there with our own adventures, so join us with All Things Green in 2017 and let's see how it grows!
In celebration of the season, we noticed there were many plants mentioned in traditional (and some non-traditional) Christmas songs. In this episode, we play some song clips and talk about plants, plant history, and some current topics on the plants in the songs. Denise Welker, greenhouse and garden manager at OSU-OKC joins Annie and Angie for the music and discussion.
Annie's husband, Rob Napier, put together the music clips for the show. Thanks, Rob, awesome job!
Fun show, hope you enjoy it!
We started to call this show "Shameless Self-promotion", but it really isn't about promoting us (Angie and Annie). Since we work for two of the greatest institutions for horticulture in the state of Oklahoma, we decided it was a good time to highlight the OSU-Oklahoma City Horticulture department and also the Oklahoma County Extension Service. Wonderful education and service programs that benefit people all over the state of Oklahoma.
Becky Sellers joins us to talk about the Oklahoma Nursery and Landscape Association, a great association serving the green industry in Oklahoma.
Spend some time with us and learn more educational, service and industry opportunities in horticulture!
