- Program Description
Holly Shimizu visits secret gardens and a little house on the prairie at the American Horticultural Society Children's Garden in Alexandria, Virginia (George Washington's "River Farm") to get a look at the new children's gardens. It's topiary madness when Jim Wilson gets a lesson in power-pruning spruce trees from South Carolina's Pearl Fryar. Roger sews late plantings of kale and collards. Plain parsley becomes exotic tabouleh with a little help from Chef Marian Morash.
