This month on Down To Earth, Tom and crew are in Mira Mesa at a typical starter home garden: a tiny one.
But having a small garden strip doesn't mean you can't sharpen your gardening skills before moving on up (and pay forward a useable landscape for the next owner!).
Tom shows us how to squeeze a stunning assortment of plants into a miniscule space on a small budget. For a list of plants Tom used, click here.
He also builds herb pots with Master Gardener Aenne Carver, and delves into the subject of outdoor landscape lighting back at the nursery. For a list of plants Aenne recommends, click here.
