University of Illinois Extension Master Gardeners Gwen Podeski and Linda Smith were guests on the WTIM morning show Monday morning. Podeski mentioned how the cold weather hasn’t been all bad for gardening, mentioning how her daffodils haven’t ever lasted as long as they have this year. Podeski did say however that some plants don’t take well to the colder weather.



Linda Smith mentioned the University of Illinois Extension’s upcoming plant sale, and some of the things that are available in the sale. Podeski also told us how you can get your own plants involved.



That sale takes place on May 7th. For more information call the University of Illinois extension’s Christian County office at 287-7246.
