Posted by Judy Korn on Tuesday, Feb. 8, 2011

“Prairie Yard and Garden” (PY&G), on Pioneer Public Television, and host Larry Zilliox will welcome James Madson of Bertha on Thursday, February 17, 2011, to discuss gladiolas and how to grow and maintain them. Gladiolas, or glads, are commonly used in bouquets and floral arrangements. Madson will demonstrate how best to maintain the color and vigor of glads.

Created and produced at the University of Minnesota, Morris, PY&G is in its 24th year of traveling the state tapping researchers, gardening and nursery professionals, educators, and ordinary backyard gardeners for their expertise in horticulture, landscaping, and a variety of gardening topics in a sometimes difficult and frustrating growing region. PY&G has been one of the number one rated programs of national or local origination on Pioneer for the last few years. The program airs Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m. January through April, with rebroadcasts Mondays at 1 p.m. and Saturdays at 4:30 p.m.

Pioneer Public Television, a Public Broadcasting System (PBS) affiliate, serves more than 375,000 households across Minnesota, South Dakota, and Iowa.
