Episode 2601
Airs on 7/6/17 and 7/9/17

On this Volunteer Gardener, we’ll have it made in the shade—a beautiful shade garden that is. Annette Shrader finds plenty of colorful blooms and stately foliage in this terraced garden. Then, Phillipe Chadwick walks in the sunshine with an enthusiastic grower through her raised beds brimming with vegetables. We’ll see how using espalier techniques can transform the ordinary into garden focal points. Tammy Algood combines fruit with bacon for a morning treat. Dried Pear Bacon Bread sounds yummy indeed.

Chic and trendy, today’s indoor plants are as much about décor as they are greenery. Matt Kerske introduces us to new and dramatic foliage for the home. Plus, we’ll tour lovely mixed ornamental and herb beds that benefit from a breathtaking backdrop. Marty DeHart talks with author John Tullock about his book, Growing Hardy Orchids.

Episode 2603
Airs on 7/20/17 and 7/23/17

On this episode, we’ll talk mulch, makeover and microgreens. An empty backyard can be a terrific asset to new homeowners. Matt Kerske sees how a family’s desire for growing edibles, and a play spot for their growing child was realized in this updated outdoor space. Weed suppression and moisture retention are two benefits of mulch in the vegetable garden. Jeff Poppen shares insights about what he uses and how much. Julie Berbiglia introduces us to what’s known as vegetable confetti or microgreens. These nutrition-packed tiny plants take only 2-4 weeks from germination to harvest. We see how a gardener has a microgreens production operation in his basement.
