- Program Description
Roger Swain and stone mason, Roger Hopkins, are readying a spot near the driveway for a piece of Milford granite, named for Milford, Massachusetts. The stone is "flamed" so that it won't be slippery when wet. They use feathers & wedges to split the stone.
Bob Smaus is at the Getty Center in Los Angeles, California, with Richard Naranjo, Manager of Grounds and Gardens. Highlights: Plane tree (platanus acerifolia) Wisteria venusta Mexican cypress tree Aloes Golden barrel cactus Devil's fig Sycamores Azalea hedge
Roger Swain plants sedum sieboldii into small holes in the stone wall. He uses sphagnum moss followed by a soil/peat moss mixture to house the small plants.
Roger harvests rhubarb 'MacDonald' for Marian's next recipe.
Roger Swain displays tulips 'Ballade', 'Pieter de Leur' and 'Angelique.'
