    Hour 2

    Spring is here. The daffodils are blooming and the tulips, azaleas, flowering dogwoods, crabapples, and cherry trees are getting ready to pop.  That means it’s time to turn your attention to your garden — clean up the flower beds, prepare the soil, and plan for the new season’s plantings.  Today, we’ll get some spring gardening tips from two expert gardeners and horticulturists.  Our guests are SALLY MCCABE, project manager of Garden Tenders with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and JENNY ROSE CAREY, Director of Temple University’s Ambler Arboretum.
