Tasty garden treats on “Your Southern Garden” April 17

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.
