Propagation, hydroponics, color changes on 'Your Southern Garden' April 23

Propagating from stem cuttings, changing hydrangea colors and building a hydroponic garden are featured on "Your Southern Garden" with Walter Reeves April 23 at noon and 6:30 p.m. on Georgia Public Broadcasting.

With just a few quick tips, gardeners can learn to propagate shrubs from cuttings. University of Georgia horticulturist Paul Thomas will show Reeves how to do it right.

Then Reeves will demonstrate how to change the color of hydrangea flowers.

If you’ve ever wanted to experiment with hydroponics or grow a lettuce farm by your backdoor, you can learn to do both. Reeves visits with University of Florida horticulturist Tom Wichman to make a hydroponic setup in a plastic tub.

"Your Southern Garden," produced by the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and UF IFAS Extension, is a one-of-a-kind program specifically for the Southeast. The program is made possible with sponsorship from the Alabama Cooperative Extension System and Clemson Cooperative Extension.

Watch “Your Southern Garden” on select public TV stations in Alabama, South Carolina and Florida. Check local listings for details.
