Springtime planting season is here. To new gardeners, the abundance of plant choices can seem overwhelming. Do you plant a flower garden or try your hand at vegetables… and in a drought, how do you identify water-wise or drought-tolerant plants? In this hour, we talk with a panel of green-thumbed experts to hear how a novice gardener can start growing, and what are some sure-fire veggies or varieties for beginners. And we want to hear your gardening questions, especially if you’re planning your first planter box or garden or troubleshooting last season’s mistakes.

Guests:

Claudia Damiani, greenhouse manager, Valley Verde in San Jose

Julie Chai, garden writer, editor of 'Discovering Dahlias"

Flora Grubb, co-owner, Flora Grubb Gardens in San Francisco
