Pitcher plants, coleus and tires on 'Your Southern Garden' July 16

Learn about everything from pitcher plants to recycling tires on "Your Southern Garden" with Walter Reeves July 16 at noon and 6:30 p.m. on Georgia Public Broadcasting.

Pitcher plants are beautiful and fascinating to watch because they eat insects instead of plant food. Linda Walker will then show how she propagates hundreds of coleus plants at Callaway Gardens.

Garden raconteur Felder Rushing will show Reeves how he converts truck tires into planters, using a sharp knife and a well-placed knee.

"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.
