Ever wonder about all the different ways garden plants begin? From heirlooms to hybrids, we discuss.

Our first pre-recorded but live Dirtbag show since this virus thang got going...and it went pretty well we think. Join us. Host Glen Andresen is joined by Jim Gilbert, where we talk about where garden plants come from, watering during the dry season (though not necessarily hot), Jim's seaberry breeding program program (where he is trialing thousands of seedlings), and slug control.

As always, we'll have a new Plant of the Month (pineapple guave); a new Garden Stumper--though no way to call in to win the price; and we define cultivar, sport, and seedling.  And, of course, what's annoying Glen this month.

The Dirtbag... Listen. Laugh. Learn.
