Galls, Mulch, Wild Indigo
This week, Reeves also looks at galls caused by wasps, flies, midges and aphids. He shows apple gall on oak leaves, nipple gall on hackberry, horn gall on witchhazel and warty gall on cherry. And he tells what to do about them.
Summer is sure to be hot and likely to be dry. Reeves shows how to use newspaper and straw to mulch under tomatoes. He also compares different kinds of tillers and tells which is best for certain garden jobs.
Finally, guest Jim Midcap of the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences talks about wild indigo (Baptisia spp.). This Georgia Gold Medal winner has a rich heritage and does well as a perennial in Southern landscapes.
