Program Description

The Victory Garden visits Atlanta, Georgia this week as guest presenter Lee May tours Tony Smith’s bonsai garden. With a spectacular view of Atlanta’s skyline, Smith’s rooftop garden features dozens of meticulously pruned miniature trees. Watch and learn as Smith shows beginners how to start a bonsai tree. (note: this segment originally featured in show #2412.) This week at the Victory Garden Roger Swain shows us how to force daffodils in the fall months in order to have a pot of early blooming flowers in the spring. He plants daffodil bulbs along the driveway and a bed of tulips in the garden. He prunes the Brugmansia versicolor for its winter dormancy indoors and picks some parsley for Marian’s tasty taboulleh.
