Stillwater —

“Although rain has been somewhat scarce across the state for the last couple of years, we’ll be doing a feature on rain gardens, and we’ll also focus on water rationing,” she said. “Other gardening topics we have planned for viewers include vegetable gardening, including some less common vegetables as well as those gardeners are familiar with, tree care and irrigation, air plants, controlling grasses in flower beds, managing wildlife, crop rotation and container fruits. We’re definitely offering a variety of topics that will appeal to everyone.”

Toscano also pointed out July will mark the beginning of the 40th year for Oklahoma Gardening on OETA. As part of the celebration, long-time viewers will have the opportunity to see some familiar faces as previous hosts make appearances on the show.

Oklahoma Gardening airs at 11 a.m. on Saturdays and at 3:30 p.m. on Sundays on local OETA stations. The program is produced by Oklahoma State University Cooperative Extension through the department of horticulture and landscape architecture, Agricultural Communications Services and the Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources.
