Season 1, episode 2: Grow THIS!

My idea for this episode was to get four very different gardeners and ask them to recommend a couple plants they really love. I got John Grimshaw, Ivette Solar, Doug Oster, and Mr. Subjunctive on the line and... well, I got a lot of great plant recommendations, but I also had some fascinating discussions about choosing good plants, the fashions of horticulture, growing produce all winter long... it was all over the place, and a lot of fun. So tune in for all that, and check out below the actual plants we talked about.

Aloe marlothii
Juniperus scopulorum 'Moonglow' (Note, though most junipers are great everywhere, this species does poorly in humid areas in the Eastern US. My favorite alternative for a similar look here in Michigan is Chamaecyparis lawsoniana 'Van Pelts')
Juniperus pfitzeriana 'Aurea'

Limbaugh Legacy Potato Top Tomato (source)
Tatsoi (source)

Cyclamen hederifolium (source)
Galanthus 'S. Arnott' (source note that most US sources incorrectly list this as 'Sam Arnott')
Crocus tommasinianus (Any fall bulb catalog will have it)

Mr. Subjunctive
Chinese Evergreen (Aglaonema)
