- Program Description
Roger Swain talks about how to recycle tulip plants for a second bloom in a cutting bed. He cuts dead wood from the blueberry bushes which are housed in cages (only the newer growth produces buds). He weeds the base of the plants by hand as their root system is quite shallow. To fertilize them, he scatters 1/2 cup of ammonium sulfate (21-0-0 )and 1/4 cup of muriate of potash (0-0-60), to mature plants. He mulches them with a heavy blanket of sawdust (this will help in preventing fungus). Much of the rose “polka” has died back over the harsh winter. He takes out the dead canes and prunes others to just above new shoots (at a slant 1/4” above new growth). Bob Smaus is at Robinson Gardens surrounding an old Beverly Hills mansion. Garden Director Timothy Lindsay takes us on a tour through the private house & gardens. Chef Marian visits with chef Bill Wavrin of Rancho la Puerta as he prepares Pea & Broccoli Guacamole and Roasted Eggplant. Roger patches a sink hole in the lawn filling it with a mixture of lime and soil and then topping it with a commercially prepared seed/fert/mulch mixture.
