The Victory Garden

Episode #2319

Viewers travel to Maine with garden correspondent Holly Shimizu to visit a spectacular garden with noted landscape architect Patrick Chass. The 1950's home and grounds are set back from the shoreline, allowing the natural splendor of the setting to shine. Featuring sweeping views and lush greenery, striking color combinations, naturally occurring reflection pools and a dwarf conifer collection, this garden offers a surprise at every turn. The highlight of the tour is a rich moss garden that serves as a velvety backdrop for original stone sculptures. Featured recipe: roast chicken stew with peppers. Red and green peppers add freshness and pizzazz to Chef Marian's rich chicken stew.
