This week on In the Garden with UC Master Gardeners, we have a twofer for you!  Both topics are relevant for this time of year.  One topic is Bareroots.  UCCE Master Gardener and KUCI staff host Teena Spindler will speak with Gary Matsuoka, a local nurseryman, about one of the most time-sensitive task in the winter garden – planting bareroot nursery material.  Now is that time once again and you’ll hear what it takes to successfully plant and grow plant material which is sold, not in pots, but wrapped in plastic with limited moisture-retaining media.  Proper planning is important so get your helpful hints here before venturing out to the garden center.

Plus Mark Fierle talks with Certified Square-foot Garden teacher Daniel Abair.  Learn how to grow in raised beds using the square-foot gardening techniques.  This novel concept of gardening was developed by Mel Bartholomew.  Imagine how to get all the harvest of typical row gardening in just 20% of the space!

John Sayles

A talk by John Sayles — “one of the country’s best independent filmmakers,” according to a reviewer for the Washington Post Book World. An Academy Award-nominated writer and director of such classic films as The Return of the Secaucus Seven, Matewan, Eight Men Out, and Lone Star, Sayles has also edited screenplays for dozens of major motion pictures, including Apollo 13, Men of War, and Mimic. He won the Writer’s Guild of America’s Ian McLellan Hunter Award for Lifetime Achievement, and his novel Union Dues was nominated for the National Book and National Book Critics Circle awards. For this program, Sayles reads from and discusses his novel A Moment in the Sun. Set during the Philippine-American war at the turn of the century, the book explores the history of that era through the individual voices of Filipino rebels, African American military men, and gold-seeking miners, among others.  (Recorded May 2, 2011 at the Free Library of Philadelphia)
