Ponds, pups, planting plans on 'Your Southern Garden' July 2

Learn about pond care, agave pups and creating planting plans on "Your Southern Garden" with Walter Reeves July 2 at noon and 6:30 p.m. on Georgia Public Broadcasting.

On a visit to Callaway Gardens, show host Reeves bites his tongue while digging agave pups to propagate with Shelia Kanotz, manager of the Sibley Horticulture Center.

Then, Florida Extension agent Wendy Wilbur shows why it’s important to leave an unfertilized buffer zone near a waterway on your property. University of Florida IFAS landscape instructor Erin Alvarez shows how to plan landscape designs by laying them out on the ground before you plant.

And, Reeves tells viewers about a sweet-smelling shrub you can almost smell through the TV.

"Your Southern Garden," produced by the University of Georgia 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 by 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.
