The Victory Garden

Episode #2324

Viewers visit the private garden of Loeki Schwartz in Maarssen, Holland, with international correspondent Adrian Bloom. With its dramatic use of foliage against brilliant perennials and room after room separated by carefully pruned Hawthorn hedges, Schwartz has created a garden with the illusion of grandeur despite its small backyard size. A prominent piece in the garden is a small temple built as a place for the gardener to rest and view the fruits of her labor. Featured recipe: braised collards. Chef Marian shows how to braise collards to retain their just-picked flavor. CC (VGAR #2324, 10/16/99, 1230-1000; OB: 10/17/98) [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
