Garden Maintenance During The Heat of Summer


Every few weeks at First Light University of Illinois Extension educator Richard Hentschel and First Light host Brian O’Keefe get together for ‘Farm to Table’. They discuss everything from agriculture and agri-business to your back yard garden and home landscape. For this month’s segment Brian met Richard inside one of the greenhouses at Shady Hill Garden, and they talked about maintaining and even enhancing ornamental plantings during the warmest months of the year
