Do you want to replace your dying summer container plants with something beautiful that will survive the winter? Jeff Jabco, director of grounds and coordinator of horticulture for the Scott Arboretum of Swarthmore College in Philadelphia, has been teaching workshops on winter container gardening. He will suggest plants that can survive the winter from the frozen North to the milder South and give advice on what kind of soil mixture and containers to use. Then, many gardeners think they can just toss things like horse or chicken manure onto any part of their garden and have great success, but the reality is much more complex. Mike McGrath will explain how to properly use the many types of "barnyard manure" to really please your plants. [Broadcast Date: October 25, 2007]
