- Program Description
Roger Swain prepares the soil for the new perennial bed. After it's been tested, he adds organic matter (a commercially prepared compost) and tills it into the existing soil. In the cottage garden, he displays a new tree waiting to be planted.
Holly Shimizu is in Athens, Georgia, at Vince Dooley's garden (Athletic Director at the University of Georgia).
Roger plants dahlias in two raised beds, supported by tomato cages. He gives them an added boost with a chicken manure-based fertilizer. He shows us the new cucumber trellis that is covered in row cover to prevent insects. He also plants ornamental corn ‘mini blue' that is edible.
Chef Marian visits with chef Bill Wavrin at Rancho la Puerto as he prepares corn tostadas.
And Roger displays a container filled with coleus, helichrysum ‘limelight' and calibrachoa ‘terra cotta.'
