Library Chat Podcast: May 2021

May’s Library Chat discusses the topic of gardening and the books and a podcast that help us to enjoy are gardens, flowers, yards and more. This episode we invited a special guest, library patron, and Master Gardner Roger Erpelding, to share his knowledge with us.  We also discuss an episode from the podcast Let’s Argue about Plants brought to you by the editors of Fine Gardening.  Episode 84 titled Underappreciated Plants for Spring discusses those plants that maybe are overlooked when we are planting.  Check out the library blog for a book list and more from the Library Chat May episode.
