Tomato time on 'Your Southern Garden' May 14

If you are ready for fresh summer tomatoes, don’t miss "Your Southern Garden" with Walter Reeves May 14 at noon and 6:30 p.m. on Georgia Public Broadcasting.

Show host Reeves visits Bonnie Plant Farms to track down how millions of tomato plants grow from seed to finished plants found in garden centers. Tomatoes require training. Bonnie Plants’ David Chambers shares tips.

If you like tomato and okra stew, you can find out which method of pre-germinating okra seeds works best. Does bleach really help?

While tasty tomatoes may make gardeners smile, smilax does not. Reeves shows how to control the thorny menace.

The program is made possible by sponsorship from the Alabama Cooperative Extension System and Clemson Cooperative Extension.
