- Program Description
Roger Swain showcases mid-July blossoms, such as shasta daisies, allium seed heads, Easter lilies. He prunes the top of a European beech tree, so that only one dominant header remains. It grows tall, rather than wide in the middle of the garden. He discusses caring for various raspberries.
Holly Shimizu is in Philadelphia touring a pocket garden that resides in front of a renovated stable. She continues to Chestnut Hill where she tours another garden boasting primarily native plantings.
Roger plants a spike winter hazel, a woody plant recommended by Michael Dirr, in the shaded nursery area. In the potato patch, he shows us damage from leaf hoppers and recommends insecticide (they have also attacked the nearby beans).
Chef Marian prepares a bean salad (see below).
Plant of the week: hydrangea ‘Annabelle'
