Program Description

Program #3305: Soft October 4, 2008

What's softscaping? Plainly said, it's anything that's not hardscape in the garden. Plants! But certain types of plants are better at softening than others. Paul Epsom visits a specialty grass nursery in New Hampshire to see some best bets, and there, he learns how grasses are year-round showstoppers. Jamie Durie visits the world-famous Filoli gardens in northern California to learn how good plant choices are used to soften design. Still have those green, hard-to-ripen tomatoes left in your garden? Use them up before the cooler weather sets in! Chef Michel Nischan shares a recipe for green tomatoes that you won't want to miss.
