Ways To Subscribe

Overnight frost is here, which means it won't be long before the ground freezes too hard for one of the best parts of fall — planting bulbs! Larry's here with tips for putting your above-ground garden to bed for the winter and getting your fall bulbs planted for a good start to spring.

Programming note: Growing A Greener Kenai moves to a once-a-month schedule in the winter. Tune in for gardening tips at 11 a.m. the first Saturday of the month, October-April. And Larry's still here the third Saturday of the month, exploring Movie Classics with co-host David Rigall.

And check out the Central Peninsula Garden Club's winter programs here.

Larry started gardening in first grade when he took a bag of navy beans from the kitchen and threw them all over his backyard. They grew and his dad mowed around all the plants and he got a great bean harvest that year. From then on, he was hooked. Larry has gardened for over 60 years and the last 30 years in Alaska. He is on the Central Peninsula Garden Club board of directors and also the board of the Kenai Soil & Water Conservation District. His goal for Growing a Greener Kenai is to disseminate the most accurate information possible in order to help Kenai Peninsula gardeners achieve the best results for their gardening endeavors and efforts.
