Fragrance in Flowers & Natural Perfumes

HomeGrown starts making scents this week with visits to a woman who makes perfume, and a man who studies fragrant flowers.

Vermont extension specialist Dr. Leonard Perry talks about the amazing variety of fragrances in the garden, and their impacts on humans and insects.
