Program Description

Gardening is all about change — adapting to challenges while enjoying the fruits of your labor. This week in The Victory Garden, we'll review what was successful in the garden and what didn't grow to its potential, and why. Then, host Michael Weishan will continue with our front entrance re-design, examining fencing options that fit your home. Next, learn the best bets for making your own stone walkway with this lesson in hardscaping. Finally, gardener Kip Anderson shares tips for growing garden-fresh peppers, like the ones chef Martin Boucher uses in his delicious Ratatouille recipe from Maison des Erables in Montmagny.
