Enjoy a feast for your eyes as Dave discovers a garden spread over 23 acres in the heart of the city, the Denver Botanic Garden. This garden presents many different garden settings, from a walled English Garden, to the Rose Garden to several displays of native and drought adapted plants. Panayoti Keladis took us through the Prairie Garden, Western Borders, and Water Wise Garden to illustrate the rich variety of plants and strong display of color and texture available. These plants are perfectly adapted to the hot, dry, and windy climate of Colorado, the plains, and intermountain West.
Then come along as Dave visits Renee Shepherd, a renowned plantswoman, and chef who started Renee's Garden Seeds to provide home gardeners with a rich palette of flowers and edibles that enhance the beauty of your garden and your table. One of her passions is Sweet Peas, which she grows and mixes in special blends to create enticing bouquets of both color and fragrance.
