We’re celebrating Earth Day! Barbara Pierson, manager of the renowned White Flower Farm dishes about the new tomato called Chocolate Sprinkles, and we tell you how you can get an exclusive “At Last” rose bush from White Flower Farm*. Plus, gardening tips galore from the Connecticut Garden Journal’s Charlie Nardozzi. Charlie’s new book is called Foodscaping, and it’ll teach you how mix edibles with ornamental plants, turning your yard into a delicious foodscape. This show is bound to make you veggie-hungry, so Chris Prosperi makes a beautiful tomato tart to give you a taste of what’s to come this season.
