Program Description

We're livin' for the city this week. We'll cover the next steps at our new urban project here in Dorchester, Massachusetts where there will be plenty to inspire you to get growing. We'll then take a tour of some secret pocket gardens in Boston's Beacon Hill for some great design lessons. We'll show you some best bets for plants that have interesting habits and leaf shapes — a must for any small garden. Then it's off to Maison des Erables outside of Quebec for a delicious recipe with peppers.
