Tomato Troubles, Attracting or Repelling Insects, and Getting Started with Foraging

by Ellen Zachos and C.L. Fornari | Plantrama with Ellen Zachos and C.L. Fornari

Is there a way to repel insects from your outdoor office? Ellen has a short answer for this question…and then she and C.L. go on to discuss the down-and-dirty truth. We also sing the praises of sending houseplants to summer camp…yes, your indoor greenery just might benefit from being a “fresh air plant.” In our Eat, Drink, Grow segment we help you sort out problems you might be having with tomato growing, and Ellen offers Insider Information about getting started with foraging for wild-grown food. Our program ends with a question from a listener about plants that (yikes!) attract flies to the back door.
