- Program Description
Roger suggests fertilizing container plantings every two weeks with a water soluable fertilizer. He points out the ivy growing in the gaps of the stone wall. The ivy will prevent erosion and will eventually cover the entire area. In the stone wall by the lawn, he displays dianthus, hens & chicks, orostachys, achillea and geranium. He plants a succulent into a crevice by stuffing it with soaked sphagnum moss, and filling it with a mixture of potting soil mixed with sand. He “mulches” the plant with tiny gravel.
Holly Shimizu is in Newport, Rhode Island, with Phyllis Kramer touring her extensive gardens. Roses highlighted are ‘Constance Spry' (soft pink) combined with a smaller rose ‘Paul's Himalyan Musk'... ‘Sally Holmes' and ‘Heritage' are also shown.
Roger collects cucumbers ‘Aria' for Chef Marian's recipe (see below).
Plant of the week: Eucomis bicolor ‘pineapple lily'
