Media firm partners with garden expert

A media company has announced a partnership with a prominent garden and greenhouse expert that will give horticulture enthusiasts tips throughout the growing season.

Bradford Media Group (BMG) chose the 40th anniversary of Earth Day to reveal that it has teamed up with William Moss.

The expert will share his garden and greenhouse knowledge with Americans through the online resource

Growers will be able to watch more than 30 high-definition videos on subjects such as bringing nature to the garden and saving cash by growing your own nutrient-rich food.

"Everyone on Earth Day needs to take time to do something good for the planet. Get out there, dig in and get your hands dirty – its good for you," Mr Moss said.

BMG chief executive officer Brad Heureux added that he is proud that his Philadelphia-based firm is participating in Earth Day, as it was in the Pennsylvania city that it originated.

Meanwhile, the Ashville Citizen Times has drawn readers attention to a special tunnel greenhouse class taking place this weekend.
