How Does Your Garden Grow? Part 1: A mystery bush

Apr 16, 2021

A mystery bush.

On Episode 1 of this series, we've got a mystery bush! Marina Doneda and her dad, David Edwards, wrote in to us to ask about a mystery shrub on the family’s 100 acres in Madison County. What exactly is it? (Check out some pictures below!)

Lots of bushes bloom around this time in the spring - including Viburnum, Sweet Shrub, Forsythia and Quince bushes, so we put Laura Ney on the case. She hopped on a zoom call with Marina and David to talk about a bush that’s been blooming since Marina’s great grandfather bought the land.
