A Facebook Garden Party

Garden Guru Charlie Nardozzi will address your garden dilemmas this week - on Vermont Edition and Facebook. As host of The Vermont Garden Journal on VPR, Charlie brings us insight on successful organic gardening every week. When he's the guest on Vermont Edition, the questions pour in - and the topics range from apple trees to red lily leaf beetles to zinnias.

This year, VPR has invited gardeners to share their secrets of success on the Vermont Garden Journal Facebook page. We created this venue for you to ask each other questions, post photos and find out about gardening events, stories and articles.

On Thursday, when Charlie is finished on Vermont Edition, he'll fire up his laptop and continue answering questions on the Vermont Garden Journal Facebook wall until 2 o'clock.

We're expecting an avalanche of questions, and Charlie may not be able to get to them all. But we'll do our best - and encourage you to chime in with your own answers and experience. "Like" the VPR Garden Journal Facebook page and join our dirty fingernails brigade.

By the way, you don't have to have a Facebook account to follow the conversation - you can read it without signing in.

  1. Hi Charlie, Have had an oleander for 8 yrs. Hasn't bloomed in the last a 24"x24" pot. Branches are 1/2" at bottom growing to 6'. Buds on 8 out of say 20 of them but never a bloom. Any ideas of how to prune it back? and when? Thanks,
