Margaret Roach is a leading garden communicator. In her previous lives she was the garden editor at “Newsday” (one of the country’s largest daily newspapers) and then she became the first garden editor of “Martha Stewart Living” magazine. Margaret is the author of three books on gardening and life.
Margaret’s popular blog, A WAY TO GARDEN, named after her award-winning first book, is her latest horticultural incarnation with words and photographs (taken in her Hudson Valley, New York, garden).
Margaret always brings us the newest information about important developments in environmental horticulture, ecology and perhaps most of all – growing vegetables organically.
This week we talk more about organically grown seeds to sow for vegetables this year. She tells us why these kinds of seeds are important to find, and even more, when possible – find local sources for seeds. (Above, ‘Glass Gem’ corn from Native Seed Search, and, below, a few of Margaret’s favorite catalogs.)
Margaret Roach’s recommended seed sources:
Wild Garden Seed
Southern Exposure Seed Exchange
High Mowing Organic Seeds
Hudson Valley Seed Library
