Melinda’s interview

I had the good fortune to interview Melinda Myers, host of the PBS show, “Great Lakes Gardener,” for an article in The Gazette about the upcoming Winter Gardening Fair. She will be the keynote speaker for the event on Feb. 2 at Kirkwood Community College. Melinda told me about one of her favorite flowers, called cuphea, or cigar plant, which is a favorite of hummingbirds. She also told a fun story about a visitor to her home who was shocked to see a “weed,” milkweed, in the backyard of this gardening expert.

    My “weed” milkweed has been allowed to grow where it establishes itself and it feeds the monarch butterfies or at least the spawn of the monarch. It is the preferred food of the monarch. And the pods are of interest in the winter.
