Thinking About Spring Flowers In The Depth of Winter

Periodically on First Light, University of Illinois Extension educator Richard Hentschel and First Light host Brian O'Keefe get together to talk about everything from farms and agriculture to your home garden and landscape. This week, in the ‘Farm to Table’ segment Richard and Brian headed back out to Shady Hills Nursery in Kane County. Even though the region is firmly in the grip of winter, this is also the time when gardeners find themselves pouring over seed catalogs and dreaming of planting season. Shady Hills owner Matt Heidgen is also already thinking about spring.
