'Home and Away' takes sneak peek at water gardens
This week, "Home and Away" host Cathy Hamilton, right, offers a sneak preview of the Sunflower Water Garden Society's pond tour with examples of both professionally built and do-it-yourself ponds.
The Sunrise Garden Center tip is on spirea, one of the easiest flowering shrubs to grow in Kansas.
A new show airs at 6:30 p.m. each Monday on Sunflower Broadband Channel 6 and repeats at 9 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. The show is also broadcast at 9 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and 9 a.m. Sunday.
Now's the time to search for award-winning plants
