Horticulture Day: Christmas Trees
Every December tens of thousands of seemingly sensible Iowans buy a cut tree and bring it into the house. On Horticulture Day Charity Nebbe talks with forester Mark Vitosh about Christmas trees, how they’re grown, how to pick a good one, how to keep it fresh and how our Christmas tree crop was affected by the drought.
Horticulturist Richard Jauron then joins the conversation to answer listener questions about the plants in their lives.
