The Delmarva Potting Shed, broadcast live on Delaware 105.9 FM

Jim talked about how he became seized by hostas and why he chose the genre of magical realism to let hostas speak for themselves. He discussed the influence of Michael Pollan’s The Botany of Desire when he began attributing motives to the hostas. He also fielded questions about hostas, mysteries, and magical realism more generally from the Potting Shed panel while discussing his work as website manager for the Delmarva Hosta Society. Book sales and signing followed the radio broadcast, with each book purchase accompanied by a free starter hosta ‘Stiletto’ from the author’s garden.
