In this episode C.L. talks about two of her favorite self-seeding annuals: red poppies and a multi-colored flowering tobacco. Next we seek to reassure those who worry that the plant problem they see (insect or disease) might spread to all the other plants in their yard. Ellen and C.L. discuss combining random acts of kindness with random acts of gardening, and answer a listeners email.
