Long Description: 
Using LIGHT to your advantage in the garden is a skill. This week, The Victory Garden looks at light in many different ways. Host Jamie Durie visits the renowned Ruth Bancroft Garden in Walnut Creek, CA, to take a closer look at specimens that reflect light, absorb light, or bring light into your garden. Then, we tackle one of gardening's most persistent questions: what's a gardener to do with shade? Gardening correspondent Paul Epsom gives a primer on the many different types of shade, and how to choose the right plant for the right place. Our "Homegrown" segment this week features a Burmese salad with greens and herbs straight from the garden and greenhouse.
