How is the traditional gardening media using Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms to reach more gardeners? In Part Two of “The Gardening World and Social Media,” Nest in Style moves beyond book publishing and garden shows to gardening magazines and television shows. Part One.
Listen to Steve Aitken, editor of Fine Gardening Magazine, explain how social media is allowing their editors to interact with gardeners nationwide for real-time feedback, among other things. Hear Joe Lamp’l and Theresa Loe of the upcoming PBS series, “Growing A Greener World.” They describe how social media is providing new ways to reach viewers and deliver content that extends far beyond the actual television program.
And, as always, there’s seasonal folklore from Teresa O’Connor (aka Seasonal Wisdom). This time, we look at Valentine’s Day and ponder whether this day really is connected with some little-known saints. Jayme shares a simple Valentine’s Day themed appetizer that’s sure to keep vampires at bay.
