The Victory Garden

Grasses (#2821)

Get the grass greener on your side of the fence. Host Michael Weishan enters the major leagues with David Mellor, director of grounds at Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, and gets advice on hitting a home run with proper lawn care. Then, Michael returns to The Victory Garden to meet up with Kip, who introduces a variety of ornamental grasses that help add texture and color to a perennial border. The Urban Project, based in Somerville, MA, is completed with final planting tips and suggestions for ground coverings that thrive in the shade. Finally, it's off to the kitchen with chef Didi Emmons, author of "Entertaining for a Veggie Planet," who whips up a delicious dish of broccoli and noodles. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
