Welcome to another episode of We Dig Plants! Today, Carmen Devito and Alice Marcus Kreig are joined via the phone lines by Rebecca Bull Reed, the Associate Garen Editor of Southern Living Magazine. Rebecca is a horticulturist who entered the world of garden writing and journalism almost by accident! Hear how Rebecca left her job in agricultural chemical sales to design at a small gardening store. Tune in to hear Carmen and Alice talk with Rebecca about her GWA award-winning article, "Lush Life". Rebecca discusses what details make a garden eligible for inclusion in Southern Living. Learn about some gardening trends that are taking root in the South, and how growing food has come in vogue. Learn about some of Rebecca's other stories, and the amazing gardens she has had the opportunity to profile. This episode has been sponsored by Hearst Ranch.
