HomeGrown 04/13/08 – The Iris & Purple Martins

Purple martins and rainbow-colored iris form the garden palette on HomeGrown this week. Bob Gutowski of the Morris Arboretum discusses the more than 250 different irises he grows in his garden – and which of those will work here. Louisvillian Larry Melcher has had a decade-long interest in purple martins, and he explains how to attract them to your yard or field where they are sure to delight with their aerial maneuvers and child-rearing instincts.
