Program Description

Need some advice on solving your garden's problems? You'll find it right here on The Victory Garden. We'll visit a garden here in Belgium that's extremely "space challenged" — and we'll learn how to take advantage of an awkward, narrow layout. Back in the states, we'll see some disease-resistant dogwoods, learn how to best combat invasive plants, and meet an inspired artist who's taken advantage of the worst of the invasives — oriental bittersweet — to create trellises, arbors, and other rustic furniture for the garden.
