Program Description

Program #3304: Dark September 27, 2008

This week, we're keeping you in the dark! Deep, dark chocolate, and black plants look great in any garden. Join Jamie Durie as he visits the San Francisco Botanical Garden to see how they've worked dark plants into their collections. Paul then shows off his hands-down favorite groundcover for dark locations. Got shade? Get moss! Starting a beautiful moss garden is easier than you think—when you've got the right conditions. Not enough room in the city to grow everything you'd like? "Homegrown" this week introduces you to the best farmer's market in New England, in the heart of Boston—where you'll learn to select the best, diverse produce with a chef.
