When it comes to watering plants, there’s really only three options - too much, too little, or just right … but there’s the rub.

There’s a whole spectrum of water needs in between.

We’ll also hear from April Shelhon at Botanical Interests about how the seeds you find in packets at the store get there, and she’ll also share some tips on starting seeds at home.
