This week on We Dig Plants, Carmen DeVito and Alice Marcus Krieg are joined by writer, teacher, traveler and researcher Dr. Allan Armitage. Allan is a renowned horticulturist who teaches online courses and has developed a popular app called Armitages Greatest Perennials and Annuals. Tune in as they reflect on the state of horticulture, gardens around the world and the next generation of gardeners! This program was brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery.

"Horticulture has never been sexy. It is in fact lower today than it's been in some time, but having said that I am quite optimistic that we will continue teaching horticultural students for years to come..What has happened in horticulture is that it's been merged with plant science. Botany and all sorts of other things get thrown in the bag so horticulture is diluted" [14:00]

"There are 5 books on gardening for dummies and each one is over 200 pages. What self respecting dummy is gonna read that stuff?! We've gotta make it simple." [18:00]

This week on We Dig Plants, solo host Alice Marcus Krieg is talking garden myths with author and radio show host C.L. Fornari who joins on the phone via Poison Ivy Acres on Cape Cod. Talking about her new book "Coffee for Roses," C.L. elaborates how the book came about and how important it was to have a humorous spin. According to the book, word-of-mouth may be a great way to learn about some products, but word-of-mouth gardening tips can be a very bad idea. The age-old practice of passing along gardening tips and tricks is no guarantee you will get a good result...it might even do the opposite. In her new book, garden expert C. L. Fornari looks at 71 common garden practices and uncovers the truth behind the lore. Do marigolds keep the bugs out of the veggie patch? Will rusty nails turn hydrangeas blue? With humor and affection, she goes back in time to sort out the good, the bad and the just plain silly and tells us why. "Coffee for Roses" combines gardening history and expert advice into one useful, time- and money-saving package. This program was brought to you by Fairway Market.

"One of the things we learn from the garden is to never say never." [11:35]

"There are numerous home remedies that didn't make it into the book either." [13:38]

"People are prone to be a little wacky when it comes to products that are under the kitchen sink and spreading them around the garden." [13:53]

Are some plants aphrodisiacs, or is that just a myth? This week on We Dig Plants, Garden expert and plant detective Helen Yoest takes us on a romp through history, lore and ethnobotany to find out plants got their "hot" reputation – and what modern science has to say about it. Discover which common garden plants and favorite edibles have that ""something extra,"" and why. Her book, Plants With Benefits is filled with lush photography, growing tips, and recipes for preparing teas, potions and tasty treats for your pleasurable use. Can a plant create feelings of arousal, contentment or receptivity? It looks like the answer is yes. This is the first book about selecting garden plants for their sex appeal. This program was brought to you by Heritage Foods USA.

"Certain foods put you in a receptive mode, like cayenne pepper. it's heating the body and making you receptive." [14:00]
