HPU Gardens on UNC-TVHIGH POINT, N.C., Sept. 26, 2013 – The Mariana H. Qubein Botanical Gardens and Arboretum will be featured on UNC-TV’s “In the Garden with Bryce Lane” at noon on Sept. 28 and 11:30 a.m. on Sept. 29.

During the half-hour horticulture show, Lane will discuss the gardens with Mariana Qubein, HPU’s first lady, and Jon Roethling, curator of the grounds at HPU.

“We are honored to present our growing Botanical Gardens and Arboretum to viewers across the state,” says Qubein. “The university has invested much time and effort into keeping our grounds healthy and inviting. It is important to us to honor and instill in our students an appreciation for nature.”

“Professionally speaking, it is extremely gratifying to see all the work put in by our students, volunteers and Campus Enhancement be recognized statewide in a program the caliber of ‘In the Garden,’” says Roethling. “It only motivates me more to continue finding ways to help this project grow and take the next steps in developing the vision that Mrs. Qubein set out to create.”

“In the Garden with Bryce Lane” is an Emmy award winning, half-hour, home horticulture show that offers practical tips on how to grow plants, home landscaping techniques and showcases some of the most beautiful and unique gardens in North Carolina, the Southeast and beyond.

HPU’s gardens will be showcased alongside the Paul J. Ciener Botanical Gardens in Kernersville, N.C.
