“It was so much fun to shoot episodes of Martha Knows Best at my home and with some great friends and guests,” said Martha Stewart. “I hope people will feel inspired to go outside and try some gardening projects of their own this summer.”
During the premiere episode, Martha will explore the world of container gardens and lend advice on herb gardening to her longtime pal Snoop Dogg. Future projects include building a stone pathway for her muster of peacocks and chatting with Lupita Nyong’o about how to choose the best stems for do-it-yourself floral arrangements.
“In Martha Knows Best, the incomparable Martha Stewart will give us a glimpse into life on her farm and show us the outdoor projects she’s worked on during the last few months,” said Jane Latman, president, HGTV. “For most of us, summer is the time to flex our green thumbs and sharpen our do-it-yourself skills, so if you want great ideas that inspire you to get outside and get your hands dirty, this is the show for you."
