Gardens on TV
A couple of weeks ago, Duluth horticulturist Tom Kasper offered 10 perennials he couldn't live without on the WDSE-TV program "Great Gardening." His list included:
  • Peonies
  • Allium
  • Monarda
  • Foxglove
  • Stargazer lily
  • Buddleia
  • Rudbeckia
  • Astilbe
  • Rodgersia
  • Bleeding heart
All worthy choices. But ... what about baptisia and amsonia and hardy geraniums? And primula? And catmint? And, in all honesty, don't your Top 10 lists tend to vary by season?

This week, "Great Gardening" is scheduled to discuss "Containers for Your Home." I always seem to miss the broadcast at 7 p.m. Thursdays on Channel 8 but usually manage to catch the rebroadcast at 5 p.m. Saturdays. Meanwhile, check out photos from the program's viewers. One quibble: It would be nice to have some caption info to give the photos context.
