Straw Bale Planters with Shirley Bovshow on "Home and Family" Show!

Do you want to learn how to make a straw bale raised planter?

Hi Friends!

I invite you to watch my appearance on the "Home and Family" show this week as I re-purpose a straw bale into a raised planter for herbs and greens!

The show airs on the Hallmark channel which is on most basic cable packages and stars Paige Davis of "Trading Spaces" and Mark Steines of "E Entertainment.


Garden designer, Shirley Bovshow (l) with hosts Mark Steines and Paige Davis (center) and expert contributors to "Home and Family" show.

I'm the garden lifestyle expert for the show!

The show airs on Friday, Nov. 2, 2012 from 10AM12PM PST.

Thanks to De Wit tools for supplying their legendary tools for the segment- they  customized a bulb planter for easier cutting through the bale and sent an assortment of tools from The Netherlands!


De Wit tools are  handmade in The Netherlands and are made with the highest quality Swedish boron steel and FSC-accredited European ash.


De Wit customized their bulb planter making it extra sharp and long so I could cut into the straw bales easily!

Bonnie Plants supplied an assortment of fall herbs and greens as well as their liquid plant food.


Thanks Bonnie Plants!

Please check your local listings for accurate time and leave your questions for me below!

Happy Halloween and happy straw bale planting!
