Gardening and gizmos on April 10 episode of "Your Southern Garden"

By J. Faith Peppers

Can you garden in just a few square feet? Sure, if you space your plants appropriately. Find out all about square-foot gardening on “Your Southern Garden with Walter Reeves” April 10 at 12:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Georgia Public Broadcasting.

Watch as Reeves discovers swollen, weird-looking leaves on his azalea plants. “It’s a gall, y’all,” he says. Jaret Daniels, a conservation biologist at the University of Florida, will also teach Reeves how to attract butterflies to the garden and Krissy Slagle, program assistant with UGA Cooperative Extension’s Master Gardener program, will demonstrate all sorts of gizmos to keep your houseplants watered correctly.

“Your Southern Garden” is produced by the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and University of Florida IFAS Extension. It is a one-of-a-kind program specifically for the Southeast. The program is made possible by underwriter support from Scotts Miracle Grow and sponsorship from McCorkle Nurseries.

Faith Peppers is the director of public affairs with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.
