Sept. 23 'Georgia Gardener' Visits Railroad Garden

All gardens are nice. Some are truly unique. On "The Georgia Gardener" Sept. 23 and 25, host Walter Reeves visits Charles and Frances Tidd to see their railroad garden.

The Tidds use G-gauge model trains and track to construct a miniature community, including scale model buildings and a covered bridge. They planted small plants like selaginella (arborvitae fern), masus, Jacob's ladder and pulmonaria, as well as dwarf hostas, boxwoods and conifers, to simulate larger plants lining the tracks.

Helen Phillips of Callaway Gardens shows how to make a planting trough. And Reeves takes a look at fall webworms and shows the big-stick way to control them.

Don't miss "The Georgia Gardener" on Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. or Saturdays at 10 a.m. on GPTV. The show is designed especially for Georgia gardeners.

"The Georgia Gardener" is produced by the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and PFC Holding Company.
