#326: Raised Bed Gardening : Tips to Grow the Most from Your Garden (Fern Bradley)

In This Episode of the Vegetable Gardening Show

#326: Raised Bed Gardening : Tips to Grow the Most from Your Garden (Fern Bradley) In this episode of the Vegetable Gardening show, Mike chats with gardening expert, author and Chelsea Green Senior Editor, Fern Bradley about raised bed gardening.

Raised bed gardening is a great way to start gardening for those who soil that lacks nutrients or is heavy in clay. Raised bed gardening is also a great way to create gardening structures that help those that have physical ailments that prevent them or make it harder for them to garden at "ground" level.

Fern shares with us why raised bed gardening is an excellent option for many gardeners, and how raised bed gardening can also be a cost effective way to grow a lot of the fruit, vegetables and herbs that you love to consume.

From there she will also tell us what it is like to be a senior editor at Chelsea Green publishing, some of her favorite gardening and non gardening titles, as well as some popular ones that you, as a gardener, have either heard of or already read.

This, and so much more, on this episode of The Vegetable Gardening Show!
