Soft (Episode #3305Z)

KQED Life: Sun, Mar 31, 2013 -- 9:30 AM

What's SOFTscaping? Plainly said, it's anything that's not hardscape in the garden. But certain types of plants are better at softening than others. Gardening correspondent Paul Epsom visits a specialty grass nursery in New Hampshire to see some best bets; there, he learns how grasses are year-round showstoppers. Host Jamie Durie visits the world-famous Filoli gardens in northern California to learn how good plant choices are used to soften design. Resident chef Michel Nischan shares a not-to-be-missed recipe for green, hard-to-ripen tomatoes left in the garden.

Using light to your advantage in the garden is a skill. This week, VG at light in many different ways. Host Jamie Durie visits the renowned Ruth Bancroft Garden in Walnut Creek, CA, to take a closer look at specimens that reflect light, absorb light, or bring light into your garden. Then, we tackle one of gardening's most persistent questions: what's a gardener to do with shade? Gardening correspondent Paul Epsom gives a primer on the many different types of shade, and how to choose the right plant for the right place. Our "Homegrown" segment this week features a Burmese salad with greens and herbs straight from the garden and greenhouse.
