Allen also shows us the newly constructed octagon buildings in the garden that were made with recycled materials and we take a trip to Mt. Vernon. Plus, we visit a garden in Chicago and talk to an expert about restoration tile.

P. Allen Smith takes a look at the design principle of creating a Focal Point. Allen takes us on a tour of some of the Garden Home Retreat's special points of interest and also shows us a way to have a grand centerpiece for your next party and still hold a conversation with the person across the table. We'll visit an amazing garden that uses its space for the arts, along with a visit to the poultry show at the state fair.
