Program Description

Roger Swain opens in the cottage garden and pulls up the fountain pump before it freezes. He wraps it in a plastic bag and hangs it over the edge of the small pool.

Adrian Bloom is in Tarascon (Provence), France, at Le Petite Fontanille, with landscape designer Tim Rees and gardener Serge Pauleau. The gardens are filled with:

Boxwood Begonia 'Victory White' Ageratum 'Blue Champion' Italian cypress Clematis armandii Pittosporum tobira (low hedge) Impatiens 'Spectra White' Nasturtium 'Alaska' Rumex sanguineus Laurel Rosemary Viburnum Lavendar Pelargonium 'White Elite' in urns Rose 'Claude Monet' (peach/pink) Gaura lindheimeri Ornamental grasses Peppermint Curry Firecracker peppers (yellow/non-edible) Punica granatum 'Nana' (red fruits) Tulbaghia violacea (purple flowers) Artichoke Lemon verbena

Roger Cook and Roger Swain are in the suburban garden turning over clover 'Mammouth Red' that was planted earlier in the season. It will add nitrogen to the soil. The beds are then covered with salt marsh hay for protection during the winter months.

Chef Marian creates carrots and cranberries:

4 cups of grated carrots 1 cup whole cranberries 1/4 c. brown sugar 1 grated apple 1/2 c. apple cider 1/2 teas. salt

Mix above ingredients well. Put into buttered baking dish, covered with aluminum foil. Bake in pre-heated oven, 350 degrees, for 40 - 45 minutes.
