The No-Till Flowers Podcast

Jan 7, 2024

Today’s guest needs little introduction in the flower farming world. Lisa Mason Zeigler of the Gardener's Workshop is an author, teacher, industry leader, flower farmer, podcaster, and also a good friend of mine.  With 25 years of growing under her belt, Lisa brings a wealth of knowledge and passion to everything she does. 

Lisa has a new book, The Cut Flower Handbook, coming out in a few weeks, which prompted this conversation.  But we cover several topics in our chat, including: 

  • Changing hardiness zones
  • How cool flowers are even more important in farm resilience and profitability in the face of accelerating climate change
  • Her new book's content
  • Tips for growing Bells of Ireland
  • Establishing natural hedgerows
  • Mulching for soil health
  • Using Frost Cloth for Season Extension
