Reeves will show, too, how to attract hummingbirds to your garden by placing feeders in your landscape. Four guests will also add greatly to this week's show:
- Wayne McLaurin discusses the best sweet potato varieties to plant in Georgia gardens. He's a horticulturist with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.
- Jim Midcap, also a CAES horticulturist, describes Mt. Airy fothergilla. This colorful landscape plant was a 1994 Georgia Gold Medal Winner.
- Nina Eckberg is a Cobb County agent with the UGA Extension Service. She tells about the life cycle of the lady beetle, one of the more famous beneficial insects.
- And Jerry Robinson gives his keys to success in planting a bed of summer annuals. Robinson is a Master Gardener and a manager at the Georgia Experiment Station Research & Education Garden in Griffin, Ga.
"Gardening in Georgia" is produced by the CAES and GPTV specifically for gardeners in Georgia. It airs each Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. and again on Saturday at 12:30 p.m.
