Program Description

Celebrate the Earth with The Victory Garden by creating a garden that works with nature, but uses your design style! To begin this lesson, host Michael Weishan heads to Plant Creations Nursery in Homestead Florida to learn a few of plant manager Ken Cook's best bets for native plants. Then, Michael is off to the Tropical Audobon Society in Miami to find out how to encourage wildlife habitats in your own backyard. Bringing these ideas back to The Victory Garden, Michael and gardener Kip Anderson meet with Cheryl Lowe and Bill Cullina from the New England Wildflower Society to design a backyard makeover with environmentally sound techniques — and great style.
