11 minutes with Ken and Vicki


I was very excited (and scared to death) when I was invited to be a guest on Ken Druse and Vicki Johnson's radio program/podcast "Real Dirt". The interview was a blur and seemed to go by really fast and all I could think about afterward was what I should have said and what I should not have said! We discussed gardening in Alabama and talked a lot about roses. Ken and Vicki were super nice and if you haven't listened to their program, all past and present episodes can be accessed on their blog. My segment should be on the November 29th episode.

  6. Phillip: I was listening to Ken and Vicki's program as I often do while working at the desk, and there you were with that nice southern drawl and all the rose expertise! Great job.

  7. Hey Phillip-

    Congratulations on the excellent interview - we were listening while driving to DC last weekend and were pleasantly surprised to hear you. I have to second all of your rose recommendations, esp. 'Buff Beauty' and the hybrid musks in general. I have a rose hybridized by the friend of a friend which is a cross of 'Veilchenblau' and 'Ballerina' - it's a once bloomer, but spectacular in spring. i'll try to remember to put in a few cuttings this winter in case you have the room and inclination to try one next spring.

    Hope you have a great holiday season!

  8. Hi Phillip, that is very impressive! I had several of Ken's books about the natural garden, you are a celebrity! Way to promote those hybrid musks, we find them to be the best roses here too. Must get Buff Beauty!

  13. I have kept this post marked as "unread" until I had time to sit down and listen to the podcast. You did a great job and had lots of good information. You represented well all bloggers, rosarians, librarians and Southerners!
