Did you know that soil is the most important influence on plant growth? Some of the key soil functions include: physical support for plants, the source of nutrients and water for plant growth and, food and biomass production. In fact, the Food and Agriculture Organization estimates that 95% of our food production depends on soil. To help put that all into perspective, we interviewed soil expert, Cristina da Silva on Corona’s Green Industry Leaders Network, #plantchat podcast series.
After chatting with gardeners over the years, one topic they can't get enough of is fruit trees. Whether discussing soil prep, planting, proper care or pruning techniques, many want to know how to get the maximum yield from their fruit trees. We were thrilled to interview a renowned fruit tree expert on Corona’s Green Industry Leaders Network, #Treechat podcast series.
Corona presents the first Green Industry Leaders Network, #plantchat podcast, featuring National Wildlife Federation's, David Mizejewski. The Garden for Wildlife™ movement, started 45 years ago to help gardeners plant with purpose. By supporting wildlife in gardens and landscapes, the movement is an effort to double the abundance of butterflies, birds and other essential pollinators. On this episode, Beth Tuttle, president and CEO of American Horticultural Society, a founding partner of #plantchat, interviewed David to learn more about this fantastic program.
