Quick hat-tip to Shirley Bovshow for bringing us the coolest new thing online in the gardening world – her weekly Garden World Report. Started seemingly spontaneously at the garden writers event in Raleigh last month, the report's audience is growing fast and the show is becoming a Must-See for many in the gardening world, including this blogger. Featured every week are real-world garden experts from around the world via short videos sent to Shirley for her to edit and incorporate into the show.
In addition to this weekly news-and-features show, Shirley's already working on spin-off, stand-along shows – because apparently she doesn't require sleep. I frankly can't figure out how she works the hours she does and manages to be so darn cheerful on-camera, though I suspect the answer isn't that she takes uppers but something about a naturally positive disposition that frankly, if they could bottle it I'd buy it. She's a wonderful host.
The episode below covers young gardeners from the U.S. and England and lots more.
