Flower Power Garden Hour

Dec 23, 2021

Have you ever wondered why during the holidays we bring mistletoe inside?  What were some of the plants brought inside during Victorian times?  In this episode, I talk to horticulturist Matt Mattus about the history of holiday plants and how to care for them.  Matt has been gardening since the age of 9 on his family’s historic 1910 Worchester, MA home.  An expert in most aspects of gardening, he specializes in South African bulbs and alpine plants.  Matt has been featured in Martha Stewart Living and Better Homes & Gardens, and is currently a contributor to Fine Gardening.
