National Garden Bureau interview

Wed. Mar. 21, 2018

Hey Folks!  I recently had the opportunity to talk with Diane Blazek.  She’s the Executive Director of the National Garden Bureau.   This organization started in 1920… before All America Selections!  The two joined forces and the NGB is the marketing arm.  What does that mean for the home gardener?  Click below to listen!

Diane talks about:

  • the partnership between AAS and NGB
  • the judging and trialing processes for them
  • who selects the winners
  • NGB programs such as New Plants
  • shade annuals
  • The Year of…. selections
  • and a bunch more!

Check out their website ngb.org!  PS, this is a non-profit organization that serves home gardeners!!
