Long Description: 
What's SOFTscaping? Plainly said, it's anything that's not hardscape in the garden. But certain types of plants are better at softening than others. Gardening correspondent Paul Epsom visits a specialty grass nursery in New Hampshire to see some best bets; there, he learns how grasses are year-round showstoppers. Host Jamie Durie visits the world-famous Filoli gardens in northern California to learn how good plant choices are used to soften design. Resident chef Michel Nischan shares a not-to-be-missed recipe for green, hard-to-ripen tomatoes left in the garden.
