Robert Vincent Sims, aka "The Garden Rebel," is renowned across Florida as one of the area's premier experts. His show is animated and entertaining with advice such as "Give names and faces to the weeds, someone from your office perhaps, maybe even your in-laws; now grab the weeds firmly and hit them hard against the cement. You'll be drained of all your hostilities!" Sims introduced phase landscaping to his listeners and is widely known for his sensible and simple solutions. He has also authored some of Florida's best-selling books, including the popular "Lifting the Mind Fog," as well as numerous audio and video cassettes.
"While not typical programming fare for a regional sports network, we love the idea of this show and believe it will become very popular," said Jim Liberatore, corporate vice president and general manager of Sunshine Network. "Florida is known for its unique growing conditions and `The Garden Rebel' will showcase many of the creative gardening ideas designed just for Florida homes. Vince is amazing. His style, exuberance and expertise will make this program a must-see for pro and amateur gardeners across the state."
