New gardening newsletter on-line

University of Georgia

Georgia gardening guru, call-in radio host and retired University of Georgia Extension Service agent Walter Reeves has introduced a new on-line gardening service, "The Georgia Gardener Newsletter." Now in its second biweekly release, the newsletter is full of timely landscape information.

"Lots of folks asked about one," Reeves said. "Not everybody has time to listen to 4 hours of radio to get the gardening answers they need, so we put topical information in one place for them."

Reeves, author of several gardening books and the host of WSB-AM 750's "The Lawn and Garden Show," offers expert advice on topics ranging from garden knowledge and glossary terms to pests and plants of the day.

"We want this to be a place where gardeners can get reliable, consolidated information," he said. "Best of all, almost all of it is based on trustworthy research from the Georgia Extension Service."
