STILLWATER — Oklahoma gardeners who are ready to get back in the gardening groove can get started soon as new episodes of OETA’s popular television program “Oklahoma Gardening” resume airing this weekend.
Kim Toscano, host of Oklahoma Gardening, said many new, educational topics are in store for viewers this year during the show’s 41st season.
“Oklahoma Gardening” will air new episodes Saturday and Sunday and Feb. 22-23 before going on hiatus for OETA’s fundraising festival. The show will return March 22.
“Oklahoma Gardening” airs at 11 a.m. Saturdays and at 3:30 p.m. Sundays on OETA. The show’s website includes video clips, a link to gardening resources, a link to recipes featured on the show and more, at www.oklahomagardening.okstate.edu.
“We always strive to make the show appealing to both novice gardeners and seasoned growers and this year is no exception,” Toscano said. “Viewers who may be new to gardening will find our segments on building a garden from the ground up very informative, while we continue to provide research-based information for those who already have a little dirt under their fingernails.”
For those with a penchant for growing vegetables, the show will feature sustainable gardening techniques. Plantings will include many unusual crops such as Belgian endive and Romanesco. Toscano said the show will kick off the growing season with a series of segments focusing on growing vegetables under low tunnels.
