The Growing Season 


Mother Nature is always surprising us…

She is sassy and always willing to party. Next time you step outside don’t be shy – grab a trowel or shovel and prepare to get down and dirty! The Growing Season is funny, engaging, informative and always a bit left of centre. Join Matt and Jack McFarland, weekly, for the horticulturally unexpected.

The Growing Season: No politics or pulpits, just plants and muddy work boots.
