The best indoor growing systems

Welcome to our weekly podcast with longtime Anchorage Daily News garden writer and author Jeff Lowenfels and co-host Jonathan White. Think of it as a companion to Jeff’s weekly columns and his popular series of books.

As southcentral Alaska endures its first snow storm of the season, the guys talk about a variety of indoor lighting systems to help your plants thrive during the winter months.  Also, did you know that snow has a little bit of nitrogen in it (poor man’s fertilizer)!?

Other topics include indoor hydroponic gardening systems, as well as what to look for when purchasing LED lights.

As always, Jeff and Jonathan wrap up the episode by answering some listener questions.
