Did you know that hydrangeas are the most Googled shrub and flower on the planet? They are a favorite for many gardeners, yet often times they confuse one for another. Different types of hydrangea produce different types of flowers, can thrive in different zones, and have different requirements when it comes to pruning. We caught up with Stacey Hirvela, of the #1 plant brand, Proven Winners and she helps shed some light on this amazing shrub.
Gardeners quite often mention that they love roses but they are too hard to grow. Or that they take too much time, they don’t have the space to grow them or roses just don’t do well. We caught up with Susan Fox, a noted rosarian on a recent Green Industry Leaders Network podcast, who covered some basics about roses and a personal guarantee, there is a rose out there for everyone!
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.
