Prairie Yard and Garden turns focus on lilacs

Posted by Matt Privratsky '11, Walker on Tuesday, May. 3, 2011

“Prairie Yard and Garden” (PY&G), on Pioneer Public Television, will visit the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum on Thursday, May 5, 2011. Peter Moe, operations director, will introduce varieties of lilacs and discussing their characteristics with host Larry Zilliox.

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., 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.
