Walter Reeves.

On "Gardening in Georgia" this week, host Walter Reeves has a little something for almost every gardener: controlling weeds, preparing soils for planting, feeding and attracting birds to your yard and more.

Reeves shows how to make a giant paintbrush to "paint" weeds out of your lawn without hurting your grass. All you need is a rake, an old towel, some string and a herbicide.

A popular gardening show in its third season on 0019 Georgia Public Television 037A , this week's show includes a couple of recipes. One is for preparing soil for planting. The other is for cooking homemade suet for the birds. Reeves takes a look, too, at the eye-catching purple hyacinth bean.

Besides all that, guest Wayne McLaurin lists the best cucumber varieties for your backyard garden. And Jim Midcap shows the Lenten rose (Helleborus orientalis), a 1999 Georgia Gold Medal Winner.

Wednesdays, Saturdays on GPTV

"Gardening in Georgia" airs on Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. and is rebroadcast on Saturdays at 12:30 p.m. on GPTV. The show is designed specifically for Georgia gardeners. It's produced by the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and 0004 GPTV 261A .
