Program Description

Inspired Gardens

This week Victory Garden host Jamie Durie demonstrates how to create a dramatic bougainvillea espalier of your own, inspired by The Getty Museum in California. Gardening correspondent Paul Epsom takes us on a "seasonal walk" through the world-famous New York Botanical Garden to demonstrate how to maintain a low-maintenance seasonal border all year long. Finally resident chef Michel Nischan teams up with renowned Boston-based chef Barbara Lynch to dry vegetables for year-round use and stir them up into a hearty Italian summer Minestra—a flavorful soup that uses the garden to its best advantage.
