KAYSVILLE, Utah — Recently, KSL Greenhouse Show hosts Taun Beddes and Maria Shilaos explored the best ways to extend your gardening season.

The two went to the Utah State University Botanical Gardens in Kaysville and visited with Sheridan Hansen, an assistant professor of horticultural, about ways to extend the gardening season in Utah, where our springs are notorious for unexpected shifts in weather.

Adding a growing structure creates a greenhouse effect, intensifying the warmth from our spring sun. And it helps keep tender plants from freezing.

Take a moment to see the gardens demonstrate to Taun and Maria what they did to easily extend their growing season:
