Program Description

Creating a water garden is a hot new trend — host Michael Weishan offers his "Best Bets" for plants that are both beautiful and functional whether you're planting your water garden in a pond, steam or bog. And for added inspiration, this week The Victory Garden travels to The Fells, a nostalgic refuge reminiscent of an early 20th-century summer estate, to tour its rock garden — featuring over 600 distinct species of plants. Then it's off to the kitchen where celebrated guest chef Chris Schlesinger, author of "Let the Flames Begin," shows how to prepare a magnificent dish of mussels and garden-fresh parsley.
