On the road again . . . 
The Victory Garden has a tradition of providing access to some of the most innovative gardens of the world. This season, we travel across North America, visiting beautiful landscapes in both the United States and Canada, all while sharing practical advice everyone can use at home. 

And we’re growing too . . . 
From Maine to Mississippi, every gardener is confronted by slightly different challenges. We’ve uncovered an exciting opportunity to explore the issues that affect gardeners in warmer weather zones, so we are taking an extended visit to Callaway Gardens, our Victory Garden South. We’ll be spending the beginning of our season in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Pine Mountain, Georgia at Callaway Gardens, an award-winning setting perfect for unearthing new tips and ideas for the warmer regions of the country.

This season, we’ll also be growing roots with The New England Wild Flower Society’s Garden in the Woods. Many homeowners want to know how to adopt earth-friendly gardening practices andThe Victory Garden will present fresh, ecologically focused gardening stories on topics ranging from wildlife gardening and birding to low-water requirements and shade gardening. 

How does your garden grow?
The Victory Garden knows that all gardeners have their own vision and goals, and our objective is to offer a wide variety of ideas to assist and inspire viewers. 

In Season 28, we’ll debut some fun new segments. “Digging Deeper” will reveal fun gardening tips and facts such as how to rescue your houseplants from extinction, and will bring gardeners to unique locations such as an old-world root cellar. “Field Trip” shares insight into the latest gardening trends and will take us off the beaten path to unveil the world behind the plants. “The Backyard” brings the best tips and ideas home again regardless of whether you have an urban plot or suburban landscape, giving you the chance to keep the grass greener on your side of the fence. 

We’re also bringing back, by popular demand, “Inspired Gardens,” “Edible Gardens,” “Weekend Projects,” “Best Bets,” “Tools of the Trade,” and “Gardening Basics,” all of which provide essential information everyone needs to get gardening. 

From garden bed to table top . . . 
The delicious segment “Green Cuisine” also returns this year! Pairing together nationally known chefs and the freshest of straight-from-the-garden produce, The Victory Garden puts a crisp new spin on exotic recipes and home-style favorites. Joining us this season will be Deborah Madison, author of Local Flavors and Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, who’ll demonstrate new ways to think about beets and peas. Hiroko Shimbo is back sharing her recipe for Asian greens; and Lidia Bastianich, bountiful chef and host of PBS’s Lidia's Italian American Kitchen, shares a delicious meal. Each recipe will be a culinary treat that can be cooked up with fresh fruits and vegetables from any home garden. 

Waiting to bloom . . . 
Be sure to tune in for the return of the Victory Garden Contest, as we search for America’s most beautiful herb garden. Learn great new tips to adapt to your own garden design, get answers to the questions that have you stumped at home when we pay “House Calls,” and have a few laughs, all while watching your garden grow!
