Program Description

Program #3303: Light September 20, 2008

Using light to your advantage in the garden is a skill. This week, The Victory Garden looks at light in many different ways: Jamie Durie visits the renowned Ruth Bancroft Garden in Walnut Creek, California, to take a closer look at specimens that reflect light, absorb light, or bring light into your garden. Then we tackle one of gardening's most persistent questions: What's a gardener to do with shade? Paul Epsom gives a primer on the many different types of shade and how to choose the right plant for the right place. Our "Homegrown" segment this week features a Burmese salad with greens and herbs straight from the garden and greenhouse.
