A visit to a great nursery is inspiring. Color and texture draw you in, and wish-list plants beckon you from benches and displays. You might even find a plant you can’t live without, even though you’ve never seen or heard of it before. Join Daniel and Carol as they stroll the aisles of a favorite Rhode Island nursery and talk about their favorite finds.

Expert Guest: Sarah Partyka is the owner of Farmer’s Daughter, a garden center in South Kingstown, Rhode Island.
