- Program Description
Bob Smaus visits the garden of Roger Raiche and Tom Chakkas in Berkeley, California. Tucked into the Berkeley hillside, this garden features beautiful native California plants, many of which Mr. Raiche introduced into the local garden trade. He shows us the concrete blocks used in his garden on a hillside that he treated with iron sulfate to turn it a rust color. At Victory Garden South, Lucinda Mays introduces us to the many ups and downs of kudzu, that vine that seems to be covering the South. Back at the Suburban garden, Roger looks at successful annual combinations.
