Gardening gifts for moms

Talk of Iowa, hosted by Charity Nebbe

Mother’s Day is an important day for gardeners in the upper Midwest — and not just the ones who are mothers. This weekend, you can celebrate two things — our likely freedom from frost and great gardening moms in your life.

In this episode of Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe talks with horticulturists Aaron Steil and Cindy Haynes about warm weather crops and gifts for the gardeners in your life.
