The handy-man special on ‘Gardening in Georgia’


University of Georgia

Learn how to build a bird house, a raised bed and an individual sprinkler-head irrigation system on “Gardening in Georgia with Walter Reeves” April 25.

Walter Reeves, the show’s host and a retired University of Georgia Cooperative Extension agent, will visit Callaway Gardens to find the best ways to make houses for birds, especially blue birds.

If you like gardening at waist level, Reeves will show how to build a raised bed that's at just the right height. And if you want an in-ground irrigation system without the installation headaches, tune in to see how to install individual sprinkler heads supplied by a garden hose.

"Gardening in Georgia” airs on Georgia Public Broadcasting stations across the state each Saturday at 12:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. and repeats Wednesdays at 7 p.m.

The show is produced by the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and is supported by a gift from McCorkle Nurseries. Learn more about the show and download useful publications at the Web site www.gardeningingeorgia.com.
