Local gardening expert and horticulture specialist Phyllis Stephens hosts a three hour call-in gardening talk show, “The Lawn and Garden Show”, from 8 to 11 a.m. every Saturday on KXLY 920.
She also produces daily gardening tips for three KXLY radio stations and hosts the “Great Gardens” segment on KXLY4 News.
A Spokane native, Stephens has deep roots in talking to people about gardening.
In addition to her work with KXLY, she is a past owner of a horticulture consulting and landscape design business, wrote a weekly column for the Spokesman-Review for more than a decade, was a guest speaker at the Pacific Northwest Flower Show in Seattle on three occasions, and was also the charter president and two-time past president of the Friends of Manito.
When not sharing her love for gardening with everyone else, she’s busy on her own garden at home, which has also been featured in a Spokane public yard tour, won a garden of the month contest in 2006 and was also featured on Ed Hume’s Gardening in America program.
