Favorite Plants and a Mystery Melon

September 8, 2009. Horticulturist Sandra Flowers discussed her favorite annuals and perennials for beds and borders with suggestions for both sun and shade.

Donna Brandes shared a volunteer from her garden--what is it? She was thinking a cucumber but others thought a melon. They're close relatives. Both are from the family Cucurbitaceae which includes cucumbers, melons, squashes and gourds!
