Program Description

We're tackling tough plants this week on The Victory Garden! Host Michael Weishan visits with a plantsman in Vancouver, British Columbia who gets creative with succulents, some of the toughest plants around. Then, we share some of the best bets for plants that can take the heat without too much water. Our gardening correspondent, Paul Epsom, also shows us how to make a tough — but attractive — container for the garden. And just to show we have a softer side, Chef Jasper White visits The Victory Garden's kitchen and cooks up some tender broccoli.
