A double feature! To a gardener, their garden is the happiest place on earth.
To the world in general, Disneyland is the “Happiest Place on Earth”. Put the two together and you have a gardener's dream!
This week on In the Garden with UC Master Gardeners, hear how the exquisite plantscapes of all the “lands” that Walt Disney built are designed and maintained season after season. KUCI radio host and UC Master Gardener Dece Morgan met with the Disneyland Resort (Anaheim) Horticulture Manager Evan Rathje.
Learn how the lush vegetation of the Jungle Cruise of Adventureland can co-exist within steps of the dry Southwestern plantings in California Adventure's Cars Land. This is plant management (or should we say “Magic”) at its best! Learn how it's done behind the scenes at your favorite family attraction here in Southern California.
From plant management to pest management - the second hour will be a revisit on the topic of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), a foundational teaching in the Master Gardener program. The focus of this part of the show will be understanding pesticide labeling and other pest management solutions.
