Play • 31 min

Why start a vegetable garden? Why do some vegetable gardens succeed and others struggle?

Melissa Wilsford of Rustic Hills Garden Co., a company that helps new and experienced gardeners incorporate edibles into their landscapes, is my guest on this podcast. Melissa talks about why she decided to start a firm focused on edible garden design in 2018, some books and places that inspired her, the three most common reasons vegetable gardeners struggle, and what to grow if you want a sure win in the garden. It's all about vegetable gardens and inspiring new gardeners.
