Gardening personality Walter Reeves will tell "How to be Sherlock Holmes in Your Garden" in a community gardening seminar Sept. 7 in Griffin, Ga.
Reeves will help you diagnose what's wrong with your plants. He'll show how to avoid insect damage, diseases and deer in your garden, too, with tips on growing healthy trees, shrubs and flowers.
It promises to be an entertaining evening. The seminar begins at 7 p.m. in the Stuckey Auditorium at the University of Georgia Experiment Station in Griffin. The program is free and even includes refreshments after the seminar.
Reeves is an Extension Service horticulture educator with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. He has taught homeowners about gardening for more than 25 years.
His weekly column, "Garden Tips," has appeared in the Atlanta Journal/Constitution since 1991. He also hosts the weekly GPTV show, The Georgia Gardener, and Atlanta's top-ranked Saturday morning radio show, "Lawn and Garden."
