So I bought this disk set because it was the only thing I could find that featured this remarkable gardner. It is a most excellent set, taking the viewer on valuable trips through glorious gardens from coast to coast, highlighting places for us that we may never get the chance to visit for ourselves - but it is "not" the TV series of the "Victory Garden" which I looked for but did not find. The TV series of Swain was entirely within a world of its own, and while this is the next best thing, it's not exactly what I was looking for. This one, which also features Paul Tukey, is a wonderful set in it's own right. While it keynotes several beautiful Pennsylvania sites, it left out botanical pioneer John Bartram's original farm and garden, which dates back prior to the Revolution, and that did disappoint me somewhat - but I highly recommend it for those who have a passion for "places and plants".
