HomeGrown 07/19/09 - Holden Arboretum & Virtues of a Messy Lawn

HomeGrown this week gets philosophical about weeds and a little introspective about a 3,500-acre Ohio arboretum. The philosophical edge comes from Kentucky native Nancy Gift, who discusses her new book, “A Weed By Any Other Name: The Virtues of a Messy Lawn, or Learning to Love the Plants We Don’t Plant.”Charles Tubesing, chief horticulturalist of the Holden Arboretum near Cleveland, explains the growth and development of that acclaimed arboretum, with emphasis on its butterfly garden.
