  • The Japanese Lilac Tree – An early summer bloomer, the Japanese Lilac Tree (Syringa reticulata) is a great addition to the landscape. It can grow to a height of 30 feet with a spread of 20 feet in a sunny spot with well-drained soil. The blooms cover the tree with large clusters of fragrant white blooms.
  • Dividing Water Lilies – Water lilies can benefit from an occasional division to prevent overcrowding and promote healthier growth. Casey shows how to replant the water lilies in pea gravel, kitty litter, and Oklahoma red clay. Divided plants can be spread around your water garden or shared with other gardeners.
  • Growing Tomatoes in a Hoop House – Casey visits with Bobby Sloan Jr., owner of Buffalo Creek Berry Farm in Mustang, Oklahoma about their use of a large hoop house to grow tomatoes in plasticulture. Buffalo Creek Berry Farm is also a u-pick-it for blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, and vegetables.
