Program Description

Get a rare glimpse behind the beautiful facades that line the canals of Amsterdam when we visit two historic homes in the heart of the city and their secret gardens where we learn that formal design can be easily achieved in a small space. Then, it's over to neighboring Belgium, where we learn about some best bets for hedges: plants that lend structure and texture. We'll also visit with a gardener who's beautifully designed garden was created solely for cutting. Ever wonder about where gardeners in other countries shop for their needs? A visit to a garden center in Holland reveals some fun European garden tools. All this and more, as The Victory Garden continues its tour of the Netherlands.
