Today’s show is all about surprises—and the first one is my guest. He’s back: My old friend Ken Druse is here after too many months of absence, and our subject is the surprises our gardens have offered so far this spring, from extra-bountiful roses to not-so-welcome spongy moth caterpillars, aka gypsy moths.
You all know Ken Druse, author of 20 garden books, keen propagator and plant collector. And for much of the last year he’s also been my colleague in our online Virtual Garden Club, the latest semester of which just ended. So I’ve been getting to talk to him all the time – but you haven’t heard from him in a bit, which is something we’ll correct today.
