- Program Description
Jim Wilson visits Hillside Garden, operated by Fred and Mary Ann McGourty. Featuring a great display of perennials the 6 acre farm is open from the 1st of May to the 30th of September. At the suburban garden, Roger talks about succession planting, getting the most growing time out of your garden by planting items that will grow well into the fall. He also highlights a new winter hardy variety of blueberry, the mid-bush blueberry 'Northsky' which will survive in the more northern zones of the country where the highbush blueberry will not. Roger also shows the results of using a "vegiform" on a squash to get it to grow in a amusing shape with a funny face. Cucumbers and fish make a perfect salad together, as Chef Marian Morash reveals.
