MG062 : Gardening Myths With Robert Pavlis: Part 1

This episode is part 1 of my talk with Robert Pavlis, author of the book “Garden Myths”, a book that pit’s his no-nonsense, scientific approach to gardening against many commonly held myths of gardening. In this part of the conversation we talk about myths related to germination, the toxicity of rhubarb, and fertilization.

    As a long time farmer peas and beans germinate best dry. Exactly the worst seeds to soak. If my soil is damp I don’t water until they are up and strong. If the soil is dry I water once and not again till they are up in strong. I avoid planting them before rain spells or you will get poor germ.

      I’ve never soaked seeds, out of pure laziness! It was so nice to hear from Robert that my laziness was paying off so well! Thanks for commenting 🙂
