Birds do it. Bees do it. But how do flowers and trees do it? On the next "Gardening in Georgia" June 15 and 17, host Walter Reeves will tell what to say when your child asks, "How do plants make babies?"
Besides his "daffodil botany" lesson, Reeves will also look at "garbage gardening." He'll show how to sprout an avocado pit, root a pineapple top and plant ginger and garlic you find at the grocery store.
He'll show how to get four times as many flowers by deadheading (removing the faded flowers from) your rhododendrons, too.
Finally, he'll look at tropical plants. The tropical look that's so popular in commercial landscapes can become a part of your landscape, too.
