“Prairie Yard and Garden” features impressive hosta glade

Posted by Judy Korn on Wednesday, Feb. 23, 2011

“Prairie Yard and Garden” (PY&G), on Pioneer Public Television, will be in Browns Valley on Thursday, March 3, 2011 to see Jon and Marcy Bork’s hosta glade near their home in Browns Valley. Hostas, a great solution for shady locations in a landscape, are typically used in areas where it’s difficult to grow grass and flowers because of lack of sun. Host Larry Zilliox will be in Brown Valley to talk with Jon and Marcy.

Created and produced at the University of Minnesota, Morris, PY&G is in its 24th year of traveling the state tapping researchers, gardening and nursery professionals, educators, and ordinary backyard gardeners for their expertise in horticulture, landscaping, and a variety of gardening topics in a sometimes difficult and frustrating growing region. PY&G has been one of the number one rated programs of national or local origination on Pioneer for the last few years. The program airs Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m. January through April, with rebroadcasts Mondays at 1 p.m. and Saturdays at 4:30 p.m.

Pioneer Public Television, a Public Broadcasting System (PBS) affiliate, serves more than 375,000 households across Minnesota, South Dakota, and Iowa.
