You’ll hear about fruit trees and the roles they have played (and continue to play) in our lives, you’ll learn about the sweet, delicate snowdrop and how to grow and care for them, and Naomi is also walking us through her book on dahlias and sharing several helpful tips on growing dahlias successfully.
