Connections: Discussing the popularity of houseplants and gardening during the pandemic

Have you been buying more house plants or doing more gardening during the pandemic? WXXI’s Veronica Volk reports that Rochester’s rare plant market is booming, and NPR reports that gardens have gained popularity as people have been working from home and want to grow their own food.

This hour, we talk about the popularity of houseplants, the rise in gardening, and what the experts say you need to know about growing plants and food. Our guests:
