Spring gardens are now full of beautiful blooms, or eye candy for gardeners. But gardens can offer bountiful taste treats, too. Honey, herbs, tomatoes and blueberries highlight a savory episode of “Your Southern Garden with Walter Reeves” April 17 at 12:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Georgia Public Broadcasting.
Ever thought of harvesting your own fresh honey? University of Georgia Cooperative Extension entomologist Keith Delaplane will show all the equipment needed to be a beekeeper.
Reeves will explain why container size and color are vital for successful patio tomatoes. He’ll prune over-grown rosemary, too, and show viewers what can and can’t be accomplished when doing it.
Terry DelValle, a Florida Extension agent, in Duvall County will show how to grow luscious blueberries in a container.
“Your Southern Garden,” produced by the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and University of Florida IFAS Extension, is a one-of-a-kind program specifically for the Southeast. The program is made possible by underwriter support from Scotts Miracle-Gro and sponsorship from McCorkle Nurseries.
