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

by Brad Yost on April 13, 2008

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.

I really enjoyed the Homegrown segment about purple martins. When will it appear in your archives? I have several friends that I would like to send the link to.
