How does your garden grow? | Recommended resources
The gardeners featured in our March 2022 issue are sharing their favorite resources:
• Gardening guru Charles Berryhill of Clinton helps operate the private Facebook group Regeneration Gardening and Homesteading, which he says can be a useful tool. Berryhill says he’s learned a lot from farming magazines of yesteryear, which can be found on eBay or in used bookstores or sometimes antique stores. Recommended titles include Organic Gardening and Farming, which was also known for a time as Organic Gardening. Books that are oldies but goodies that he swears by are The Rodale Book of Composting and Getting the Most From Your Garden, a Rodale Press publication.
• Scott Keach of Keach Farms in Henderson County advises new gardeners not to be afraid to ask more experienced gardeners for advice—most are happy to help. He asks local peach orchard-owning friends for advice on his own trees, and says the University of Kentucky is another great resource all types of gardening topics.
• Daylily enthusiast Lori Ulrich recommends browsing the American Daylily Society’s website. The Mayslick resident also learned from the society’s publications The Illustrated Guide to Daylilies and Daylilies: The Beginners Handbook.
