Program Description

It's time to spice up your garden and heat up your spring with a brand new season of The Victory Garden. Make your garden sizzle by adding a few unusual — but wonderfully edible favorites discovered by host Michael Weishan at the Fruit and Spice Park in Homestead, Florida. Introduce these fabulous flavors into your cooking with guest chef Aaron Sanchez of New York's Paladar restaurant — as he shares Latin-American culture and delicious cooking with Michael. Then, join gardening correspondent Erica Glasener at the Fuqua Orchid House in the Atlanta Botanical Gardens to find out the best way to display these exotic beauties. Giving you the basics you need to begin a tranquil butterfly garden this weekend, gardening correspondent Lee May joins us once again from the Callaway Gardens in Georgia, our award-winning Victory Garden South.
