Rhubarb ready for dividing
The Dirtbag crew discusses dividing rhubarb, planting bareroot and container plants, transplanting onions, the importance of weeding…and believe it or not, hand pollination!

Host Glen Andresen is joined by Jim Gilbert to talk about dividing rhubarb, planting bareroot and container plants, transplanting onions, the importance of weeding…and believe it or not, hand pollination! 

As always, we'll have a new Plant of the Month (rhubarb…and "The One Thing" to takeaway). AND, the Garden Stumper returns with a three-part question relating to scientific names. The winner gets a free sharpening of a hand tool from Cully Farm Store in Northeast Portland! There was no time for the Dirtbag Dictionary this month, but look for our explanation of the difference between thinning and heading pruning cuts next time. And, of course, what's annoying Glen this month.

And don't forget, if you have a gardening question, or the answer to the Garden Stumper, you may email us at thedirtbag@kboo.org -- we'll answer your question on the air during the next show!

The Dirtbag... Listen. Laugh. Learn.
