“In the Garden with Bryce Lane” premiered its ninth season Saturday, Sept. 10, at noon on UNC-TV.
“In the Garden” brings more of its Emmy® Award-winning wisdom from seasoned N.C. State horticultural science instructor Bryce Lane, who discusses an array of gardening subjects and invites his viewers to delve into the science behind plants and plant growth.
Lane kicks off the season with a visit to Raleigh’s Plant Delights Nursery for a sneak peek at some of the latest and greatest perennial plants. See them here first — even before they hit local nurseries.
Then Lane travels to some of the country’s most-visited gardens, the Chicago Botanic Gardens and Morton Arboretum, while also showcasing beautiful gardens close to home.
Expect to see bizarre botanicals at the UNC-Charlotte Botanical Garden and a cool conservatory at Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens near Charlotte.
And as always, Lane gets his hands dirty with a home landscape project. He’ll show you how to take a backyard living space from drab to fab … without busting your budget.
“In the Garden” is sponsored jointly by the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences’ Academic Programs and the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service, N.C. State University.
The series debuted in August 2003 and marked the first time in 40 years that UNC-TV had broadcast a college-credit course for the university system. Viewers can receive college credits for “In the Garden” by registering through N.C. State’s Distance Education and Learning Technology Applications (DELTA) office.
