Program Description

More Spring work at the Suburban Garden for Roger Swain. Beginning with the lawn, Roger and Roger de-thatch by power raking. They are trying to eliminate crab grass by applying weed killer. (When soil temp is 50° (when forsythia bloom), all power raking should be done and then the stuff is applied, watered in, kids/pets kept off for 24 hours.) Do not use near water or near plants you want to keep. Roger also plants leeks. Jim Wilson revisits the Four Arts Garden in Miami.
