Wisc Gardener Transcript:
Gary: My name is Gary Vincent. And my garden is located in Oneida, Wisconsin, which is a few miles west of Green Bay.
I plant a lot of hostas, because I was unable to grow grass as my garden became more shaded. Then, a lot of the other plants that I grow are plants that I just find interesting-- rare plants, dwarf conifers, weeping plants-- those are the things that really interest me.
The rarest, and probably my favorite plant in my whole garden, are any of the members of the Koreana family. They've recently been discovered in, I believe, North Korea. And I just love how unique they are.
Sturgeon Bay Master Gardener Karin and Mike Overbeck show off their garden at the Everygreen School, built in 1905.
