- Program Description
Roger displays various shrubs in early spring bloom (winter hazels, forsythia, pieris japonica) and pots up an Easter Lily arrangement. He will transplant the lily afterwards into the garden; it will bloom again next year in July and stand about 4' tall. He also displays many combinations of potted spring flowers.
Adrian Bloom is at Foggy Bottom, Bressingham, England, as we tour his gardens.
Roger Swain and Roger Cook devise a plan to help the crocquet lawn. They use an aerator to create holes for water, air and organic material. Together they spread lime and a top dressing of compost.
Roger Swain spreads lime over the asparagus bed and recommends blanching the asparagus by covering the bed with black plastic.
Plant of the week: white narcissus ‘white plume'
