Davis Garden Show April 01 2021 -- Landscape Coefficients and ET rates

For a scholarly approach to "Making Sense of ET Adjustment Factors for Budgeting and Managing Landscape Irrigation" , see  https://ucanr.edu/sites/UrbanHort/files/217692.pdf   For a simpler, real-world explanation of all that, listen to this episode of Davis Garden Show. In addition to water use coefficients for landscape shrubs, Don Shor and Lois Richter talk about selecting vines and (as always!) when to plant tomatoes, peppers, and other vegetables.

Davis Garden Show March 25 2021

Don and Lois talk about a wide variety of Spring gardening topics!  Starting off with a mention of the warm weekend temperatures forecast, and about the latest update regarding California's ongoing drought, two years running. Today, the statewide figures are updated showing our region in "extreme drought" due to the low rainfall during our "typical" rain season September - March. Don talks about how this can especially impact our trees and other plants, and gives some watering advice. And of course, a return to the frequently asked questions such as: When is it best plant tomatoes? Mid-April! The Davis Garden Show airs live on KDRT 95.7 FM each Thursday noon - 1 PM, and replays Saturday monings 9 - 10 AM.

Hi Robin,
We discussed your iris/gladiolus question on today's show (9/30). We always enjoy Eric's questions; he gives us lots of ideas for seasonal topics.
Thanks for the note,
Don

Hi, I work at a Garden Center and recently our company has begun to carry an Imidicloprid product (Bayer) for use on fruit trees and vegetables. My knee jerk reaction is horror. I know you'll be able to give me the real skinny, am I over reacting or is this a really bad idea? LOVE your show, "Hi Lois!: Greatly appreciated. Lori, San Luis Obispo County, CA
