Bryce Lane, the host of "In the Garden," is a national award-winning instructor in the Department of Horticultural Science at N.C. State University. A perennially popular teacher, Lane has earned the University's Outstanding Teacher Award three times.
He's been with N.C. State University's College of Agriculture and Life Science since 1981. In 1987, he was named the Department's undergraduate coordinator, responsible for day-to-day operation of the two-year and four-year academic programs. From 1997 to 1999, he served as interim director of the JC Raulston Arboretum.
Appalachian Naturescapes owners Carl Meyers and Terrel Knutson earned degrees in Landscape Design and Horticulture from N.C. State University in 1996.
"Bryce was one of our professors in college and we've had a relationship with him since," Meyers said. "We see him every year at trade shows and we speak to his classes every year about the transition from the (NCSU) program to the real world."
Bryce's crew spent about a week in Morganton during June 2012 filming Meyers, Knutson and other Appalachian Naturescapes staff as they worked on various projects.
"We had a blast with him," Meyers said. "We went to a job site and he was able to document a true work-in-progress project. We were proud to have been on camera and to feature some of our finest work."
"In the Garden" is a 30-minute weekly educational program hosted by Lane. It introduces viewers to the science behind gardening. Additionally, the series is offered in three 26-week seasons as a college course through the NCSU's continuing education program. Viewers will learn the fundamentals of horticulture -- how plants grow, plant identification, home landscaping techniques and information and ideas they can use in and around their homes. Locally owned and managed, Appalachian Naturescapes installs and maintains landscapes and gardens for residential and industrial properties.
