Down the Garden Path Ask us anything 2022

This week on the Down the Garden Path podcast, landscape designers Joanne Shaw and Matthew Dressing wrap up May’s focus on wonderful landscape shrubs with an “Ask Us Anything!” episode — and an exciting announcement!

Tune in to hear Joanne and Matt respond to listener questions.

Some of the questions listeners asked:

  • Is full sun considered to be 6 or 8 hours?
  • What is the best way to naturally get rid of weeds in the grass?
  • Is mulch the same as compost?
  • What is the best way to raise pH levels in my garden soil?
  • Can you please again review what the numbers on fertilizer bags mean? And what are the maximum fertilizer numbers that I can use for new grass seed?

Joanne and Matt also announce that their book, Down the Garden Path: A Step-By-Step Guide to Your Ontario Garden, is now available on Amazon.
