Rose Chat began on Twitter as a method to communicate information to a growing segment of rose growers. This monthly Twitter chat was the springboard to our BlogTalkRadio presence.
The need to communicate solid information on growing roses to the next generation is essential and Rose Chat Radio fills that need by providing solid rose advice, interesting guests and the latest news from the world of roses!
Growing roses in raised beds has many benefits. This weeks guest will tell us about these benefits and just how easy it is to build a raised bed in your garden. Jill Plumb creator of the M Brace® joins us to talk about raised bed gardening. She believes that gardens are places where good things happen. Every garden is a place of growth and renewal, invite us to connect with the natural world. When we dig our hands into the dirt, we are creating a space where ALL things are possible, encouraging us to Grow Beautifully in every aspect of our lives! Art of the Garden was started around one central idea: Create a way to make raised garden beds that EVERYONE can assemble and enjoy. This was accomplished with the invention of the M Brace®, “Simply Embrace Your Garden”, a set of four recycled steel braces that creates a raised garden by simply sliding any sized lumber into the braces. The M Brace® is manufactured in Galt, CA using the highest standards of technology and craftsmanship.
