"Virginia Home Grown" Blooms for its Twelfth Year
Now in its twelth season, Virginia Home Grown will continue to be a resource for central Virginia gardeners (and aspiring gardeners) and those who enjoy an outdoor lifestyle. The WCVE PBS-produced series is broadcast live from the studio of WCVE PBS, and features guest experts providing in-studio demonstrations, call-in segments, and pre-recorded visits to public and private gardens in central Virginia, as well as local farms.
The one-hour program, which airs monthly from March through October, is once-again hosted by Richard Nunnally, Extension Agent Emeritus with Chesterfield County and is co-hosted by Amy Barton Williams.
The first episode will be available as a live stream, starting at 8:00 p.m. – the same time as the TV broadcast. Simply point your web browser on your computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone to ideastations.org/vhglive and enjoy Virginia Home Grown wherever you may be.
The season premiere on Tuesday, March 27, will feature a visit from Richard with Grace Chapman at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden to discuss tropical plants. Amy Barton Williams visits Buckingham Greenery to learn about interior plantscapes and Peggy Singlemann of Maymont presents the “Plant of the Month.”
Future episodes include visits to Poplar Forest, a segment of a River Hero with the James River Association, a wheelchair garden in the Fan and a look at edible home landscapes.
SEASON 12 BEGINS Tuesday, March 27 at 8 p.m. on WCVE PBS/WHTJ PBS
