In his first show of the season, Reeves will show how to build three different types of cold frames to protect plants as you bring them outside in spring. He makes the first with four bales of hay and an old window sash, the second with a storm window and 1-inch-by-6-inch boards and the third of PVC pipe and 4-mil plastic sheeting.
He also shows how to hide those less-than-gorgeous daffodil leaves after the blooms are gone and before the leaves have turned yellow. (It's important for next year's blooms to keep the leaves on the plant as long as you can.)
Finally, Reeves shows how to plant tomatoes properly by buying disease-resistant varieties, planting deeply after removing lower leaves, fertilizing lightly and watering in the plants.
