One of the hidden gems in Union County is the Harry Potter Herb Garden at the Trailside Nature and Science Center in the Watchung Reservation, created and maintained by the Rutgers Master Gardeners of Union County. Master Gardener Dolores Batz-Culp joins us to discuss the garden, which includes many plants from the Harry Potter novels such as Lungwort, Wolfbane, Lovage and Flaxseed.
