- Program Description
Roger Swain plants tomatoes in the vegetable garden, making sure that the potted plants' roots are not too tight when tapped out of their pots. He tells us that tomatoes require a very rich, organic soil and full sun. He plants the tomatoes deeply and gives them lots of space to grow. He also plants globe artichokes ‘Imperial Star,' which have been bred to flower the first year. The foliage is gorgeous and if not eaten, the choke will flower.
Holly Shimizu is touring the Biltmore estate (Asheville, NC) with landscape curator Bill Alexander.
Chef Marian tours the main kitchen of the estate. She visits the Grove Park Inn with executive sous chef David Rowland as he prepares Chow Chow, a southern relish (see recipe below).
Roger fills a concrete container with iris, surrounded by sweet pototoe vines ‘Marguerite' and ‘Blackie' as well as coleus ‘Black Magic' and “The Line.'
